NZ Dairy Industry Awards

New Zealand Dairy Industry Awards

We have been supporting the New Zealand Dairy Industry Awards since 2003. We sponsor the Auckland/Hauraki, Waikato, Bay of Plenty and Central Plateau districts.

The New Zealand Dairy Industry Awards promote and showcase excellence across the whole spectrum of the dairy industry, helping to lift on-farm performance and develop future leaders.

Promotion of the awards help the public become more aware of, and understand, the importance of the dairy industry.

Young Fruit Grower of the Year

In 2016 we commenced sponsorship of the Bay of Plenty Young Fruit Grower of the Year Competition. This competition presents some of the Bay of Plenty’s brightest young fruit growers. It gives these future leaders the opportunity to display their horticulture skills in a fast-paced competitive environment.
