"We are aiming to reach $19 million this year," he said. "We are exporting our products to most Pacific Island countries including New Zealand and Australia, the United States and Canada."The Papua New Guinea market will open next year and we are looking forward to this new market." Mr Singh said the company employed more than 400 staff members which he dedicated the achievement to. "To win the Exporters of the Year for another year is a landmark for the company and we thank all those that contribute positively to our company."

"The award will be an inspiration to our everyday work and we will continue to work harder to achieve the same result next year. "I thank the Fiji Government and especially the Prime Minister and Investment Fiji in organising such an event to recognise the exporters," he said.

He also commended all exporters for their contributions in promoting Fiji's economy at the same time promoting the Fijian Made brand.
