Local Industry - Silver Fern Farms Export Meat (Food) Company


Danny Harrison, HR Manager of Silver Fern Farms shared with us some insights into the company.

The Silver Fern Farms company has a staff of over 1000 people in the processing season for lamb and beef at the Finegand site in Balclutha. There is a wide range of careers that includes engineers, software engineers, laboratory staff as well as processing staff.

This year the Chinese company Shanghai Maling bought a 50 per cent interest in Silver Fern Farms (SFF) to secure future progress.

Danny is new to the meat processing world, but with over 20 years working in education and HR he brings valued expertise to the district.
