Recognising stand-out individuals in the agricultural sector

The Western Cape Prestige Agri Awards, co-sponsored by the Western Cape Department of Agriculture and Shoprite, named Anton Alexander as the winner of its 2016 Prestige Agri Worker Awards on 5 November.

Alexander, from the Elgin, Grabouw, Vyeboom and Villiersdorp (EGV&V) region, is a human resources offer at Crookes Brothers’ Ouwerf Farm, where he has worked for the past twenty years.

Initially employed as a general worker, he has held various positions, including tractor driver and supervisor, before being promoted to HR officer.

Alexander also won an iPad Air sponsored by Daleen Turner Consultancy, a R20 000 Shoprite gift voucher, a R60 000 overseas study tour and R20 000 cash sponsored by the Western Cape Department of Agriculture.

Shoprite has been supporting this competition since 2012 and believes in awarding individuals who stand out in the agricultural sector and who enable it to sell quality produce in its supermarkets.
