Change, they say, is inevitable (except maybe from a taxi driver). After being at our offices in Florida Road since November 2007 and spending many happy and productive years there, the time has come to move on.
In 2013 the Citrus Growers' Association decided to buy office space in a new development in Hillcrest where there would be space for the Citrus Academy offices as well. We moved into our new office space on Monday the 14th July, and are settling into our daily work routines once again.
The time has come to apply for a bursary for the 2015 academic year.
If you are fulfill any of the below criteria then you may stand a chance of becoming a beneficiary of the prestigious Citrus Academy Bursary Fund:
- A citizen of South Africa, Swaziland or Zimbabwe;
- Studying fulltime or part-time at a registered tertiary academic institution;
- Studying in a field related to citrus production or research;
- Not going to be in your first year of study in 2015;
- Interested in a career in the citrus industry; and
- Satisfied that you are able to comply with the terms and conditions of the Bursary Fund agreement (download here) and the Citrus Academy Code of Conduct (download here).
The organisers of the brand-new London Produce Show and Conference have kindly invited six youths from the South African citrus industry to attend the show at their cost. The show is being held from 4 to 6 June at the Grosvenor House hotel in the heart of London. Presented by the Fresh Produce Consortium with Produce Business magazine, the show is a sister event of the New York Produce Show.
