The upcoming Pukeuri Freezing Works centenary has staff old and new reflecting on life at the plant, among them retired manager Russell Plew.
Mr Plew worked for about 17 years as a manager at the Pukeuri Plant, from 1984-2001, and helped oversee some massive changes.
Starting in May of 1984, Mr Plew was thrown in the deep end as the plant geared up to begin a modernising process.
