Food & Fibre Challenge

B+LNZ’s Food & Fibre Challenge is an interactive way of highlighting the many opportunities and careers within the primary sector to school leavers.

The first Food & Fibre challenge was at the 2020 Southern Field Days in Waimumu. Since then, it’s popped up across the country and has had over 600 students completed the challenge. 

In an Amazing Race style format, the challenge has school students looking around for signs with different career labels. These careers included anything from an Agri-Manager to a Quarry Operator. 

Participants fill out an answer sheet discovering the careers and information about the sector as they attend field days giving schools purpose to attend and another learning opportunity.  

B+LNZ has partnered with NZ Young Farmers to continue delivering this exciting challenge for attendees of the Southern and Central District Field Days in 2024.
