The awards programmes celebrate innovation and excellence in Asia's manufacturing and export scene.

The manufacturing industry in Asia has been a driving force behind the region's economic growth, playing a pivotal role in the global supply chain.

Betagro Public Company Limited was amongst the winners in last year's Asian Export Awards, having been named Product Exporter of the Year - Poultry for its S-pure chicken brand, a poultry meat product that is made completely without any growth enhancers or additives.

"It's a tremendous honour for us to have received this award. I would like to thank the committee for the nomination and then also for the award. It's a great honour, as I said. Singapore is a very important market for us, and we have to put a lot of energy and a lot of effort into creating a product that fits the market. This is a big encouragement for our team and all the effort they put in, so thank you very much,” said Dr Oliver Gottschall, Chief Operating Officer - Food Business at Betagro.

Both the Manufacturing Asia Awards and the Asian Export Awards provide a platform to showcase innovation, excellence, and significant contributions to the manufacturing and export sectors in Asia. These awards serve as a testament to the ingenuity and adaptability of companies in the region as they continue to drive economic growth and global trade dynamics.
