After learning that OB was facing significant difficulty due to the pandemic, Vinnie and Andrew Duncan of Duncan NZ Venison spoke with their team and decided to increase their support to include a year’s worth of venison for the 1600 plus students who come through OB each year.
A family-owned venison processing and marketing business established in 1990, Duncan NZ Venison has long committed to both industry sustainability and valued social responsibility. Through their ‘Feed the Future’ programme, Vinnie and Andrew Duncan have supported many individuals to attend Outward Bound, including Auckland secondary students on the Hiringa schools course, their own DNZ employees and DNZ scholarship recipients.
CEO Andrew Duncan is an avid supporter of OB;
“We believe that all young people in New Zealand should complete a course. All of our seven children have now done a course – as have Vinnie and I. The benefits are huge and Outward Bound plays an important role in New Zealand society.
It took me sitting in the dining room at Anakiwa enjoying a delicious meal prepared by Marcel when the penny finally dropped – we should also be supplying the school with venison! It is delicious, packed with protein, and low in fat. The perfect fuel for OB students.”
