Farming wins environmental award

IMG_0482-xxxNgāi Tahu Farming was awarded Synlait’s Excellence in Environmental Management Award for 2015 – 2016 at Synlait’s recent Suppliers Awards evening in Christchurch.

The award is part of Synlait’s Lead with Pride accreditation programme which recognises certified milk suppliers for achieving dairy farming excellence. Lead with Pride certified suppliers are independently audited and must meet (and in some cases, exceed) industry best practice across four pillars of dairy farming – environment, animal health and welfare, milk quality and social responsibility.

Ngāi Tahu Farming farm managers Karl Vercoe (above left) and Chris Eruera (above right) accepted the award on the night with Shane Kelly, general manager, Dairy, Ngāi Tahu Farming (centre).
