  • "Big Thanks to FBL's trade team for a job well done under difficult circumstances.  On the face of it this was a simple job; go and collect some rubbish left on a cycle track and dispose of it.  In practice, having driven for several hours to get to the site, the trade team had to walk miles, navigate in open country, ford two streams and bring back for disposal a huge pile of agricultural waste before safely disposing of it, and do it within timescale and budgets agreed.  The team not only accomplished the challenge, but showed care to the environment and lead with personal safety throughout.  Great service!"
