The past, present and future achievements of Hawke’s Bay’s finest Fruitgrowers have been celebrated at the annual Hawke’s Bay Fruitgrowers Industry Awards.
Hawke’s Bay Fruitgrowers Association president Ben James said the association was “really proud to be supporting our youth in the industry and their training development needs”.
“It is always key to celebrate success and also to get the story out there that there is a lot of young Kiwis training for successful careers in horticulture,” James said.
He recognised that the industry needed people, specifically the highly skilled and educated in the crowd of almost 250 at Thursday night’s celebration.
