A top night at First Fresh Growers Awards

A crowd of around 180 attended the First Fresh “Freshies” awards in the NZ Fruits packhouse in Lytton Road last Thursday night, and were throughly entertained by special guest, comedian Ben Hurley.

Waerenga-a-Hika grower John Macpherson took home the overall supreme “Freshie”, was the category winner for Navel oranges, was a finalist in two other categories and took out the award for export grower of the year.

The Freshies celebrate the achievements of all grower suppliers over the previous twelve months and reward those who achieve the most outstanding performance across a range of citrus, kiwifruit and persimmons.
