National Awards Beckon Hawke’s Bay Businesses

A pair of family-run Hawke’s Bay businesses will be bidding for international attention following big wins at the annual ExportNZ Hawke’s Bay ASB Exporter of the Year awards.

Exactly a year on from launching Rock-it Board, co-founder Annie Evans said she and her husband Dave were still “overwhelmed” at receiving the awards’ Tomoana Food Hub Innovation in Export prize on Thursday night, and the subsequent boost in interest in their natural exercise board.

“Our phone hasn’t stopped and our Facebook has gone mad,” she said.
