NZ food exporters praised

Taranaki-based Yarrows (The Bakers) and IBEX Group of Companies were successful in the recent New Zealand Export Awards in Auckland.

Yarrows, a family owned business that exports six to eight containers of products to clients across the globe daily, including the subway sandwich chain, won the 2007 Food and Beverage Exporter of the Year Award and IBEX took out the DHL Supreme Exporter of the Year.

New Zealand Trade and Enterprise chief executive Tim Gibson congratulated the seven 2007 Export Award winners.

“These companies represent a vibrant mix of successful export businesses; companies that have identified a gap in the marketplace and cultivated their point of difference to produce and distribute quality goods effectively in international markets, using a variety of business models.

“We need to see more New Zealand businesses following their lead and operating internationally in order to increase our global business footprint,” he said.
