Lifetime Achievement Award
formerly known as Distinguished Service Award

NOMINATION form available HERE

Note: Separate awards in this category are available to be presented in any and all of the industry sectors e.g. Dairy, Meat, Fish, Fresh 

The NZIFST Lifetime Achievement Award formerly known as the Distinguished Service Award recognises long and exceptional service and/or contribution to a NZ Food Industry sector in a scientific, technical, teaching, marketing or managerial role; and is specifically for industry personnel approaching, or in, retirement. This award is less definitively a science and technology award than that acknowledged by the JC Andrews Award in that it allows recognition of industry service that may be less specifically technical. 

A recipient does not need to be a member of NZIFST and a Distinguished Service Award may be awarded to one or more individuals each year. As a guide, the award may be given for long and exceptional service to the Industry in one or more of the following areas: 

    a) Leadership and promotion of quality in food products 
    b) Contribution to research of benefit to the industry 
    c) Managerial ability in an industry venture 
    d) Development of leadership of personnel within the industry 
    e) Leadership within national and/or international organisations 
    f) Promotion of legislation of benefit to the industry
