On Saturday 1st October The Griffin’s Food Company held its annual inter- departmental football tournament, the James Achari Cup. The tournament was created in memory of James Achari, a huge football fan who sadly passed away in 2012 after almost 20 years with the business.
The day is an opportunity for the whole company to come together, connect and engage in a bit of healthy competition. 14 teams from our Papakura, Wiri and Ellerslie sites took part in the day. After a penalty shootout, team ‘Tasty Cheese’ from Papakura were the tournament victors, defeating the ‘Mellow Tuffs’ from Ellerslie.
There was a fantastic turn out and with the weather improving was a great day out for the whole family, even Cookie Bear made an appearance. No doubt the teams will already be strategizing for next years’ tournament.
