Myaree-based company, AVI, an exporter of specialised communications systems for some of the world's largest industries, has been named the 2022 Western Australian Exporter of the Year.
Now in its 34th year, the WA Export Awards is an annual program that recognises Western Australian companies that have achieved sustainable export growth. Winners in 13 categories were presented with awards at a ceremony held last week at Government House.
2GR Wagyu Beef was named the winner in the Agribusiness, Food and Beverages category. Rare Foods Australia (formerly Ocean Grown Abalone) was recognised as the winner of the Sustainability category.
"The WA Export Awards recognises the local businesses for the significant contribution they make to both the State and national economies," State Development, Jobs and Trade Minister Roger Cook said.
"In 2021 exports of Western Australia's goods increased by 28% to $239.5 billion, which demonstrates the resilience and success of Western Australian exporters.”
