Farmlands Co-Op chair Rob Hewett is urging all eligible shareholders to exercise their ownership rights and have a say on the future of their business.

Two directors of the Farmlands Co-operative who are retiring by rotation but seeking re-election face competition for their seats.

Dawn Sangster from Central Otago and Gray Baldwin from South Waikato are both seeking re-election, but Baldwin is facing a challenge from Waikato’s Alastair Flett and Otago’s Kim Strawbridge joins Dawn Sangster in contesting the South Island seat.

Voting started on Friday and chair Rob Hewett is hoping for a large voter turnout.

“We are the largest rural supplies and services co-operative in New Zealand and we need the best possible directors to maintain this standing,” Hewett said.

He is urging all eligible shareholders to exercise their ownership rights and have a say on the future of their business.

Hewett says Farmlands new chief executive Tanya Houghton is now firmly embedded in the role and he sees positive steps being taken to capitalise on the opportunities available to Farmlands and the primary sector.

The closing date for voting is November 10 and the results will be announced at the annual meeting in Christchurch on November 18.
