Greenshell NZ Wins at American Chamber of Commerce Awards

Greenshell New Zealand Takes Home Supreme Award at American Chamber of Commerce Awards

Greenshell New Zealand proved just how strong its mussel business is at last week’s American Chamber of Commerce DHL Express Success & Innovation Awards, scooping up two prestigious awards.

Held at the Pullman Hotel in Auckland, the family-owned business was recognised and rewarded for exports of its innovative products under the award-winning Ikana brand.

Presented by Prime Minister John Key, Greenshell New Zealand won both The Exporter of the Year to the USA Award from the $500,000 to $5 million category and The Supreme Award 2013.

Peter Vitasovich, managing director of Greenshell, said: “We’re absolutely delighted to have received these awards as we’ve all worked extremely hard.”

“We’re proud of the progress we are making in transforming from a mussel farming operation to a branded food company.”

“We now have an innovative product range marketed under the Ikana brand: this is core to our export strategy and it’s very rewarding to see our efforts being recognised.”

“We’d like to thank the team at New Zealand Trade and Enterprise for all their support in developing our business as well as a special thanks to our staff for all of their hard work.”

“It was great to see two businesses from the aquaculture sector making the final (Greenshell New Zealand and Mt Cook Alpine Salmon). To win two awards against such an impressive line up of New Zealand companies was a huge achievement for our industry.”

Greenshell New Zealand won the following awards:
• The Exporter of the Year to the USA Award (from the $500,000 to $5 million category)
• The Supreme Award 2013
