YES BOP Regional Finals - Olivia and Brooke Moore

Kylie Sargison —

Olivia Moore’s business 'Top That' has been awarded 1st place in the Bay of Plenty Regional YES (Young Enterprise Scheme) Finals. She will go onto the National Competition in Wellington on the 6th December to Pitch against the top 21 companies from around New Zealand. There were 900 companies involved in YES this year and making the top 21 teams is a fantastic achievement. Additionally, Olivia is likely to be the youngest contestant at only 15 years old and in Year 11. Students generally enter this competition in Year 12 when they are completing Level 2 Business Studies. As a sole-trader Olivia has had to research, experiment and work extremely hard to develop, produce and sell her amazing product. She has accomplished many of the goals she set for herself at the beginning of the year. Her product is now for sale in 3 businesses - Spacecraft, Raw Balance and Le Cafe Telephonique. Also you can visit her website and purchase from her online store https://topthat.thatgreenolive.com/. To create fabulous meals and add nutrition to your plate be sure to try one of Olivia’s 3 new flavours from her Top That range. Olivia’s twin sister Brooke also had success at the Regional Finals. She was the Runner up with her business Crema Calda and her amazing and innovative world first product - Hot Ice Cream. This is definitely another product to keep your eyes out for in the future. She aims to have it in production in early 2019.
