Twenty high school students from across the South Island have recently completed a four day live-in programme to learn about career pathways in the food production supply chain. Held last week, the all-expenses-paid educational camp was attended by students from 11 high schools across the Canterbury, Otago and West Coast regions and took in visits to a range of agribusiness operations across the Canterbury region including sheep and beef, cropping and dairy farms, Food and Arable Research (FAR), Fonterra, and the New Zealand Merino company. The initial idea for the programme was developed by a group of Rabobank clients who identified a need for more promotion of agri industry careers among secondary school students.
