Napier Girls High  winners
(L-R), Bridget Cudby, Annalise Stuart, Bethany Collingwood and Monica Chau
Vegetables.co.nz supported the lower North Island winners of the 2014 NZIFST/CREST Student Product Development Challenge.

Napier Girls’ High School Year 13 students Bridget Cudby, Annalise Stuart, Bethany Collingwood and Monica Chau, won the Royal Society of New Zealand Silver Crest Award Lower North Island Challenge. They were sponsored by vegetables.co.nz.

These students developed and designed an ‘Emergency Eats’ food product for Kaweka Food Company under the guidance of Paula Campbell. The product targets a ready-to-eat meal for children (aged 5-12 years) to be consumed during an emergency situation.

The brief required the product to be shelf-stable, ready-to-eat and it had to contain at least two fresh vegetables. The NGHS team's final product was 'Meatballs and Cous Cous' using onion, carrot and courgette.
