Greenshell New Zealand wins NZ Food and Beverage Exporter of the Year
Coromandel MP Scott Simpson has congratulated Greenshell New Zealand on being named New Zealand Food and Beverage Exporter of the Year at the Export NZ Awards.
The prestigious award recognised Greenshell New Zealand’s excellence in building extraordinary and sustainable export growth in the Food and Beverage sector.
Judges said the company had shown the ability to think differently with a variety of well thought out strategies shaping their growth and future potential.
“Greenshell farms its mussels at Wilson Bay in the Coromandel. The success of the company in continually breaking new ground in terms of exports of this quality local product is great news for our part of the world,” said Mr Simpson.
“There are some very exciting times ahead for the aquaculture industry in the Coromandel. The fact that our existing operators are enjoying such tremendous success bodes very well for the future.”
