Get to know the winners of the 4th Asian Export Awards
Digital awards presentations will be held in the first and second week of December.
With the supply chain disruptions and logistical problems due to the current crisis, companies who were able to keep trade flowing and make sure that their products would reach their consumers regardless of distance are the ones who thrive amidst the crisis. These companies that have provided excellent products or services were hailed at the recently concluded Asian Export Awards 2021. Now in its fourth year, the awards programme honoured products and services that have significantly enhanced business in the regional export scene.
The event is divided into two categories, Large Corporate for companies with a group turnover of over US$300m and Local Champion for small and medium enterprises (SMEs) with a turnover of less than US$300m.
The awards were handed to the winners via digital presentations during the first and second week of December. Winning companies were also interviewed virtually to share their thoughts on winning in the prestigious event.
This year’s nominations were judged by an elite panel of judges consisting of Asta Nie, Worldtrade Management Services Leader, China at PwC Asia Pacific Customs and Trade; Jeremy Huang, Director, Corporate Finance at Deloitte; Chong Cheng Yuan, Partner at RSM Singapore; Josephine Hong, Executive Director, Corporate Advisory at BDO Singapore; and Toh Kim Teck, Partner at Foo Kon Tan.
The full list of winners are as follows:
ASIAN EXPORT AWARDS
Large Corporate Division
- Export Initiative of the Year - Food
- Product Exporter of the Year - Food
CP Merchandising introduced a new packaging solution for its C.P. brand black bag range that reduces the use of paper and also has the same strength to hold the product. The new packaging is a good solution for its wholesale customers that need to be able to use the shelf display package.
Its Meat Zero product line was also recognised in the awards programme for its quality, catering to those who love the taste of meat but want to minimise the environmental impact of the meat they consume. Meat Zero looks, cooks, and tastes like meat but is made from plants, and it is also claimed to be good for the health.
- Product Exporter of the Year - Security & Safety
Solex International won the Product Exporter of the Year - Security & Safety award under the Local Champion division in the recently concluded Asian Export Awards 2021 for two of its latest offerings: the Key Alike and Master Key System, and its innovative Padlock Bar for Roller Shutters.
The Key Alike and Master Key System introduce a mechanism that requires only one code to enable one key to open all locks. Each lock has a different code key that cannot open others, but the master key of the group can open all locks. Its second offering was created to minimise weak points they have identified in roller shutters. The weak point of the roller shutter is the thin padlock bar which can be easily cut by thieves.
