Seeking nominations for the 2017 Recognition awards

Event Date: 23rd April, 2017

Last year we had our first NZSCA recognition awards, The NZSCA wanted to recognise and acknowledge the individuals within New Zealand that give back to the industry, without these individuals we would not be where we are today. You can read more about last years recipients Chris White, Rene Macaulay and Michael C Y Park here…

Our recognition awards celebrate and reward individuals who have made a significant contribution to our industry.

This year we ask our members and coffee professionals to put forth the names of the individuals that they think have made this kind of contribution – it might be through mentorship, innovation or volunteering time and skills.

Nominations close 31 March.
