COSTA Group’s General Manager Peter McPherson has returned to the Upper Corindi blueberry farms with a major international award in hand.
Costa Group won a Business Excellence Award for Agriculture, Food & Beverage at the prestigious 25th Annual AustCham Westpac Australia-China Business Awards held in Shanghai.
“The footprint that Costa has established in China working together with Driscoll’s has taken a lot of hard work and most importantly this has involved a commitment to work cooperatively and harmoniously with local stakeholders, including government officials, our employees and local villagers,” Mr McPherson said.
The award recognises the agronomic practices that Costa has brought to China, including its world leading blueberry IP and substrate growing methods which has been a real game changer for the way in which not only berries are grown in China, but agriculture is conducted in general.
