The South African team, consisting of students from the Universities of the Free State (UFS), Stellenbosch and Pretoria won a student competition during a conference of the International Food and Agribusiness Management Association (IAMA) that was held in Buenos Aires, Argentina.

Six student teams from across the world took part in the competition.  The teams had to develop a business strategy for an Italian company that is threatened by the dreaded bird flu epidemic.  Two heats were held and the South African team walked away with the laurels.
