This year Norvite has reached the significant milestone of 50 years in business and to mark this, we wanted to give something back to the land which has supported our business since 1973.
This year Norvite has reached the significant milestone of 50 years in business and to mark this, we wanted to give something back to the land which has supported our business since 1973. With our staff, we planted 50 trees (to commemorate our 50 years) on an unused area of land at our head office at Wardhouse, near Insch.
Our people are our most valuable resource and we are incredibly privileged to still have some of our original workforce working with us, as well as several who have carved out their entire career within the company. The planting, on the evening of Monday 27th March, saw a wonderful turnout of staff and tremendous camaraderie as everyone worked together to plant the anniversary woodland.
Amongst the 50 broadleaves some special trees were planted, including three oaks to represent Norvite’s founding Directors and four oaks for the current Directors.
We were also honoured to be joined by Vice Lord-Lieutenant of Aberdeenshire Joanna, Lady Aberdeen, who planted the first tree – an oak which represents the communities we work with and support. Norvite has been embedded within the farming community for five decades and giving back to the environment is a fitting and lasting tribute. These mixed broadleaf trees will also form part of the Queens Green Canopy, the lasting legacy in memoriam to Her Late Majesty the Queen, whose Royal Warrant we have been very proud to hold. As the woodland matures, it will provide a beautiful space alongside the Shevock Burn to support the well-being of our staff.
