Over recent weeks there has been misleading information communicated by non-UMF® members regarding the future of this trademark as a Grading System. That information is intended to misinform customers and consumers, in the hope of supporting alternative rating systems.
The attached letter from the NZ Ministry of Primary Industries confirms the future of UMF® as a Grading System. In addition, the company responsible for this misinformation has been reprimanded by the regulators and instructed to communicate a retraction.
