ANZCO Foods CEO Update - March 2024

Posted on Friday, 15 March 2024 under CEO Updates

The ANZCO Foods’ team recently attended the Wānaka A&P Show, one of the South Island’s largest and most popular agricultural and pastoral events, drawing in more than 44,000 attendees and hosting more than 500 trade exhibitors.

The team, which included some of our livestock reps from around the South Island, enjoyed connecting with farmers and showcased our mouthwatering premium beef and lamb for attendees to sample. Our ANZCO site featured a variety of games and activities which enabled visitors to learn about the ANZCO Foods brand in a fun and engaging way.

The Wānaka Show was another great opportunity to keep sharing our nutrition and good health message, continuing on from our sponsorship of the ANZCO Foods IRONMAN in Taupō the weekend prior. Coincidently, IRONMAN New Zealand began the same year that ANZCO Foods was founded and we’re both celebrating our 40th anniversaries this year.

General Manager Sales and Marketing, Rick Walker, completed the full IRONMAN which consisted of a 3.8km swim in the fresh waters of Lake Taupō, a 180km bike through the rural Taupō landscape, and a 42km run along the lakefront through the town. The IRONMAN 70.3 includes a 1.9km swim, a 90km bike, and a 21.1km run and was completed by seven keen ANZCO Foods employees, while a team on the ground showcased the ANZCO brand.

We’re also pleased to announce that we have recently renewed our partnership with Growing Future Farmers. Over the past three years, ANZCO Foods has sponsored three young graduates a year through the Growing Future Farmers programme, and we’ve now committed to sponsoring three more students for the next three years. Growing Future Farmers offers structured programmes combined with extensive practical work experience on-farm alongside experienced and motivated farmers who take on students to grow the industry.
