The New Zealand Dairy Industry Awards promote and showcase excellence across the whole spectrum of the dairy industry, helping to lift on-farm performance and develop future leaders.
Promotion of the awards help the public become more aware of, and understand, the importance of the dairy industry.
In 2016 we commenced sponsorship of the Bay of Plenty Young Fruit Grower of the Year Competition. This competition presents some of the Bay of Plenty’s brightest young fruit growers. It gives these future leaders the opportunity to display their horticulture skills in a fast-paced competitive environment.

BlackmanSpargo Rural Law Limited Sports Scholarship
In 2015, we announced the creation of the “BlackmanSpargo Rural Law Sports Scholarship” as we recognised the importance of supporting young people participating in high-level sport where costs can be prohibitive.
This scholarship benefits children of clients or staff (under the age of 20), and acknowledges excellence in their chosen sport.
