The Bill Thorpe and First Fresh Scholarship

First Fresh chairman Bill Thorpe (pictured here with wife Margaret) announced that he and the company are offering an annual $5000 scholarship for horticulture study, open to First Fresh supplying growers and their families. “After more than 40 years in the industry and nearing retirement I want to give something back and I want to encourage the next generation of our grower families into this industry that I have so enjoyed.” Mr Thorpe said the scholarship was an investment in people assisting in the sustainability of the industry, “and in our people for future generations”. Applications open on August 1 and must be returned to First Fresh by September 30. For information contact Ian Albers at ian.albers@firstfresh.co.nz. or click here
