Celebrations are in order, as NZM were announced as a winner at the Westpac Champion Canterbury Awards last Wednesday (18th September 2019), taking out the Lyttelton Port Company Champion Med-Large Exporter Award!
Each year, the local awards recognise and celebrate the achievements of people and organisations from around the Canterbury region.
The Lyttelton Port Company Champion Med-Large Exporter award identifies businesses that are successful on the international stage, and are also actively involved in the development and advocacy of the export community in New Zealand. For this category, businesses have shown continued growth in their chosen market, investing in product development through R&D and have a sustainable supply chain.
In the award acceptance speech, NZM's COO & CFO Peter Floris acknowledged the dedicated wool growers of New Zealand, and thanked them for their support and innovative thinking which continues to motivate the team at NZM:
“It’s the wool growers of New Zealand who have enabled and sustained the transformation of Merino wool from a commodity product into a high value fibre.”
We also congratulate the two other finalists in our category, Enztec and Natural Pet Food Group; and all the other winners and finalists of the regional awards.
