About the Edward Turner Horticulture Futures Grant

To celebrate T&G’s 125 Year anniversary milestone, and in recognition of the Turner family’s role as the business’ original founder, T&G Global are offering a $10,000 grant to support and recognise a post-graduate tertiary student who has the potential to be a future leader and innovator in the horticulture industry, and who possesses a passion, commitment and desire to be part of its future.

Our founder’s legacy

A combination of learned skills and expertise, coupled with an entrepreneurial spirit, enabled a young Edward Turner to establish a fresh fruit business in New Zealand back in the late 1800s, starting with a small but successful fresh fruit and vegetable shop in Auckland.

The Turners & Growers company Edward Turner established in 1897, has evolved since then into a successful global business that today employs more than 2,000 people across 13 different countries, with customers in more than 60 countries.

It’s that combination of passion, commitment, expertise and entrepreneurial spirit T&G Global will be seeking in the recipient of the Edward Turner Horticulture Futures Grant.

Applications open February 2023
