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.
