‘Outstanding’ King Salmon wins top export award
Nelson-based company New Zealand King Salmon has been named among the country’s leading export companies at this week’s New Zealand International Business Awards. King Salmon was presented with the Inspiring Preference for NZ award at Thursday’s blacktie dinner in Auckland. Judge Rebecca Smith said the company won the category for its commitment to sharing its story right through the supply chain, from its own team to retailers and distributors and right through to consumers. ‘‘That commitment, that consistency was simply outstanding.’’ The company has begun taking its Regal Salmon and O¯ ra King brands to the world, with the latter – its premium product – featured on the menus of more than 1000 top restaurants worldwide. Run by New Zealand Trade and Enterprise, the awards celebrate excellence and innovative practice of New Zealand businesses on the world stage.
