“We need the thinkers, those people who dream and make things happen. Scientists, people who innovate. New Zealand as a whole needs this so we can change our position globally. Some countries are going to run out of food and there is a lot of opportunity for companies like ours in all this because New Zealand is one of the few countries in the world that produces more food than we consume, and we could produce a lot more.”

“We have a great team. I have certainly hired people in the past who have steered their lives off track – some have been really successful and even if half might make it, well that is still worthwhile. Young people especially deserve an opportunity, but they need to understand they are in the real world but certainly with the right guidance and support they have a chance to head in a better direction for them and their families”.
