Inaugural Grower2Grower Breakfast Held

Inaugural Grower2Grower Breakfast Held

Aquasan and BNZ presentation’s informative and insightful

 

Last Tuesday the inaugural Grower2Grower breakfast was held at the BNZ Partners Building in Pukekohe.  The concept is to bring small groups of greenhouse growers together to present them new information, from greenhouse suppliers of products or services, followed by a financial update from the BNZ.   It is also an opportunity for growers to have a brief catch up.

While having breakfast, the growers were shown slides and technical information by Guy Richardson and Grant Bear, from AquaSan International, regarding Huwa.San and Sili-fert P, two products gaining real momentum in the greenhouse market.  After the presentation, Hamish Frizzell, from the BNZ Agribusiness Team based in Pukekohe introduced Michelle Chester, Interest Rate Specialist, from the BNZ. Michelle’s presentation give insight to what is currently occurring in the financial sector including, short to long term rates and foreseeable forecasts.  Michelle talked about the Official Cash Rate (OCR) and what influences OCR decisions.

I would like to thank all growers who attended, especially at this very busy time, made harder by the warm patch of weather we have experienced.  I would also like to thank the BNZ for the use of their fantastic facilities and Guy Richardson and Grant Bear from AquaSan International.  Special thanks to Michelle for taking her time out to come and speak to the growers.

If you are interested in Grower2Grower hosting a breakfast in the future please feel free to contact us for more details.  E-mail marie@grower2grower.co.nz

Above, considerations influential for OCR decisions.

Breakfast was supplied by Whisk Café based in Pukekohe. 10/10 for the quality of the breakfast supplied.

Thanks to all who attended the Grower breakfast.
