MEC of Economic Opportunities Alan Winde has launched the search for best employees of the Western Cape’s agricultural sector.

Winde said over 6000 agriculture employees have entered the competition since 2002.

The first regional winner will be announced at a ceremony in Wetzenberg on July.

Ministerial Spokesperson Bronwynne Jooste says MEC Winde believes that it is important to celebrate the excellence we are seeing in the agricultural sector.

Agri professionals play a very important role in ensuring food security, they deliver high class produced which are sold across the world.

We are looking forward to honour the heroes of our agricultural sector through this initiative, Jooste added.
