New Zealand wine producer Invivo Wines has been awarded the TNT Express Emerging Exporter of the Year trophy at the Air New Zealand Cargo Export Awards held at a gala event at Auckland’s Langham Hotel.
Invivo Wines co founders Rob Cameron and Tim Lightbourne were at the awards to accept the trophy.
Cameron, who is also Invivo’s winemaker, told the awards: "It hasn’t been the easiest environment for producing and selling wine since we launched our first vintage in 2008, however, being proactive with our export customers with marketing support, managing production, delivering a quality product and solid growth while remaining profitable has been key for Invivo.”
According to convenor of the judges Hugh Cronwright New Zealand exporters continue to do well against remarkable competition on the export market.
"One of the key attributes shining through over and over again is the amazing innovation our exporters are delivering, along with excellent customer service and in-market support,” Mr Cronwright said. “For instance, though wine is hardly a new export, Invivo has taken a very different approach in both its marketing and winemaking”
The ExportNZ awards have been held for more than 20 years and are now managed by the Employers and Manufacturers Association (EMA).
