“GirlGuiding New Zealand wants to allow its members and volunteers to focus more on its core purpose and programmes,” the organisation said in a statement on Saturday.
“Following careful consideration and analysis, the GirlGuiding NZ Board has decided to stop fundraising through the sale of Guide biscuits by its membership.”
The group has sold the biscuits for more than 60 years. They’re expected to stay on sale until sometime early 2019.
“It has been an honour and a privilege to have manufactured the iconic Guide Biscuits for more than 60 years, and we are proud to have been a partner in this important fundraising initiative,” said Griffin’s managing director Brett Henshaw.
The announcement was made at the GirlGuiding national forum, taking place in Auckland this weekend.
