SFF Plate to Pasture Youth Scholarships now open

Applications have now opened for Silver Fern Farms Plate to Pasture Youth Scholarships that offer six young people from around New Zealand $5000 to assist with developing their careers and capabilities in the red meat sector.

Silver Fern Farms chief executive Simon Limmer said the response to last year’s inaugural scholarships indicate a bright future for the red meat sector.

“Silver Fern Farms welcomes applications from the industry’s emerging talent who want to contribute to a sustainable future for our red meat sector — from plate to pasture.

“We are excited to continue to support young people who want a future in the red meat industry,” Mr Limmer said.

“Last year the winners delivered outstanding ideas on a vast range of industry issues, from biosecurity challenges, exploring ways to sustainably add value to farming businesses, as well as challenging the industry to think big and be bold, with our consumers in mind.”

Mr Limmer said the company looks forward to seeing the range of ideas and fresh perspectives in the applications again this year.

“The scholarships support our vision — inspirational food created by passionate people. They are an important opportunity for us to support our emerging leaders to contribute to our industry.”

Scholarship applications have opened for people wanting to develop careers in red meat, food production, agriculture, food marketing, marketing and sales, research and development, food processing, cooking and food technology.
