Helping Bay Of Plenty Exporters Rocket Into The Stratosphere

Published: Tue 3 Mar 2020 02:16 PM
The eagerly awaited theme has been revealed for the 30th annual ExportNZ Bay of Plenty Awards. ‘Launch Pad’ aims to catapult local exporters to new heights in 2020.
The entry process enables exporters to look back over what they have achieved, what they have learned along the way, and take some tips on where they could improve based on expert judges’ feedback.
As well as a site visit, judges take a deep dive into the entrants companies to cover off all aspects of the business from their processes and supply chain to financial sustainability and leadership.
There are once again five categories in the awards, which recognise outstanding performance from businesses by revenue, innovation and an individual, all supported by longstanding local sponsors including Zespri.
Gregory Jarvis of Bluelab Corporation Ltd, winners of the 2019 Excellence in Innovation Award, says the benefits of entering are untold:
"As a result of being a finalist and winning the Excellence in Innovation category, we’ve attracted interest from people wanting to work for our company. Some are even looking at relocating to the Bay of Plenty!"
