Dickence Olwage of Morgan Cargo - Young Person of the Year

19 June 2017

Dickence Olwage of Morgan Cargo is the winner of the 2017 Fresh Award for Young Person of the Year, sponsored by Pooling Partners.

“Congratulations to Dickence for his inspirational endeavour in a challenging environment,” commented Nigel Jenney, Chief Executive of the Fresh Produce Consortium.

Born in the Kiberu slums in Nairobi, Kenya, and orphaned at a young age, Dickence has applied hard work and determination to gain skills and experience to support his family. In 2010 he joined Morgan Cargo as a warehouse operative and is now Commercial Manager for vegetable air exports. 

Last year Dickence set up a competitive airfreight programme for one of the largest raspberry growers in Kenya, delivering over 250 tonnes of this highly perishable product direct to the retailer’s UK packhouse. This year’s programme will double this volume.

“We are very proud of Dickence. He has worked very hard to achieve this and we are grateful to have him as part of the Morgan Cargo team,” said Herman Bosman, Managing Director of Morgan Cargo.

The Fresh Award for Lifetime Achievement was presented by Phil Storer of Pooling Partners in front of an audience of over 500 people at the gala evening, hosted by British comedian, actor and broadcaster Hugh Dennis at the Intercontinental Park Lane, London, UK on Thursday 8 June 2017.
