Siobhan O’Malley and Wayne Langford – win Primary Industries ‘Champion Award’ 2020

Congratulations to two of our Kellogg Alumni – Siobhan O’Malley and Wayne Langford – who were the winners of the 2020 ‘Champion Award’ at the Primary Industries Awards on 23 November in Wellington. 

Siobhan and Wayne were selected as winners of this category for their outstanding efforts as Founders of their National Charity ‘Meat the Need.’

What is the Champion Award?

“The Champion Award is intended to enable the primary industries’ community to recognise the efforts of one of its own. This is an award for the grassroots unsung hero, the genuine ‘good bugger’ who has championed their rural community and their industry. The award goes to an individual who goes beyond their own farm or business, to help others with their own challenges either in times of extreme need or in times of daily necessity.” (Copy sourced from

The Primary Industries 2020 ‘Champion Award’ category is also sponsored by Rural Leader’s Service partner Federated Farmers.

Siobhan and Wayne are the Founders of ‘Meat the Need’ a national charity that supplies much needed meat to City Missions and food banks. The Meat is donated by farmers, processed, packed and delivered to those most in need.
