Ram Sami scoops RBF award

Maciu Malo
Monday, November 19, 2012

RAM Sami and Sons Limited continued its success story in local business after winning the 2012 Reserve Bank of Fiji Medium Exporter of the Year Award on Saturday.

Group accountant Upendra Gounder said the achievement spoke volumes of their contribution in growing the national economy.

He said the success of the company was a continuation from last year after winning the Exporter of Year to Pacific Islands award.

Mr Gounder said about $500,000 was earned through the export of their products last year and the upward trend in 2013 was more than likely to continue.

"We are confident of increasing this figure next year," he said.

"We export eggs and sausages to many Pacific Island countries including Samoa, Tonga, Vanuatu, Kiribati, Nauru and we will be extending our market to the Caribbean by next year.

"We are self-sufficient here in Fiji and apart from exporting our products we are quite happy that we are also meeting our demands here locally.

"Maintaining quantity and not compromising on quality is one the contributing factors to the increase in our export markets which we think also contributed to winning this year's medium exporter of the year."

Mr Gounder said the achievement was made possible through the hard work of the 300 employees and the management team.

He also thanked the sponsors and the government for rewarding the exporters and acknowledging their contribution to Fiji's economy.

"I thank the sponsors- Vodafone and Westpac, Investment Fiji and also the Prime Minister for successfully staging such a prestigious event.

"I also thank the Reserve Bank of Fiji for sponsoring our award, I thank our bankers the Fiji Development Bank and the ANZ Bank for their continued support and not forgetting our hard working staff, directors and managers.

"The award is recognition for our company and it is an evident that our hard work has been rewarded," he said.
