Kiwifruit marketer Zespri Group said five claims by Turner & Growers, the company challenging its export monopoly, have been rejected by the High Court.
Turners & Growers is challenging Zespri's export monopoly for kiwifruit and appealing an earlier High Court decision against it.
Zespri said five claims by Turners & Growers under the Commerce Act were rejected in the latest ruling relating to a hearing in May.
The High Court earlier rejected Turners & Grower's attempt to have the Kiwifruit Industry Regulations declared illegal.
Zespri has again called on Turners & Growers to work constructively within the industry legislation to achieve its commercial objectives, arguing that its campaign had been an expensive distraction for the industry.
Turners & Growers argued Zespri was a private company with a statutory monopoly and that it was a large scale producer that should be allowed to market kiwifruit, including new varieties it had developed.
Turners & Growers is majority owned by Sir Ron Brierley's investment company Guinness Peat Group, which is being broken up. Its new chairman is Rob Campbell.
