Nominations now open for the 2024 Premier’s Export Awards

Nominations are now open for the 2024 Premier’s NSW Export Awards to showcase the best of NSW innovation, ingenuity, and quality on the global stage.  

Investment NSW Deputy Secretary Katie Knight said NSW exports of goods and services continue to trend upwards.

Exports overall contribute to $150 billion to the state’s economy, with trade supporting one in five Australian jobs. 

“Businesses which export are a major driver of economic growth, and these awards are a fantastic opportunity to celebrate the success of these businesses in strengthening NSW’s position as Australia’s most globally connected economy,

“NSW has leading businesses exporting across a diverse range of sectors and I encourage them to apply and be recognised for the valuable contribution they make to the state’s economy,” said Knight.

At the 2024 Awards, Chair of the Export Council of Australia, Dianne Tipping, will acknowledge outstanding businesses across 13 national categories and five NSW categories.

“NSW exporters are trailblazers in innovation, expanding their reach to new and dynamic markets—from food and beverages to clean technology,

“These prestigious awards serve as a platform to celebrate global success and motivate others to embrace international growth,” said Tipping.

Leading global food business SunRice Group, which has manufacturing operations in NSW’s Riverina region, was recognised at last year’s awards in the Agribusiness, Food and Beverages category.

CEO of SunRice Paul Serra said the company supplies its products in over 50 countries and is continuing to pursue growth opportunities in international markets. 

“SunRice is a great Australian success story – from a single rice mill built in the Riverina over 70 years ago, we now have operations in ten countries and supply our diverse and nutritious food products globally,” said Serra.

Nominations for the Premier’s NSW Export Awards close on Friday 14 June 2024, with finalists expected to be announced in September leading up to the awards ceremony on Friday 11 October 2024.

The NSW winners of the 13 national categories will automatically progress as finalists to the Australian Export Awards.
