Gisborne-based fruit and vege grower Cedenco last night emerged victorious at the ASB Hawke’s Bay Export Awards, taking out the top award.
It was the first time the awards had been opened up to include Gisborne exporters but the “unexpected highlight” of the night went to a Hawke’s Bay-based company, Rock-it Boards.
After Cedenco won the inaugural T&G Global Best Medium to Large Exporter Award, the Gisborne company was also named ExportNZ Hawke’s Bay ASB Exporter of the Year.
The judges said Cedenco impressed them with its investment in market research, customer relationships, and research and development to get their product right for the customer.
