Homart Pharmaceuticals has won the Exporter of the Year award at the prestigious Manufacturers' Monthly 2012 Endeavour Awards. The Exporter of the Year award is sponsored by the Export Finance and Insurance Corporation (EFIC) .
The Manufacturers' Monthly Endeavour Awards is Australia's premier national awards program for manufacturing excellence. Manufacturers' Monthly established the Endeavour Awards program to recognise the essential role played by the manufacturing industry in Australia's economy.
The Exporter of the Year award recognises companies who are successfully entering or developing an export market with a new or existing locally-made product. Homart Pharmaceuticals was chosen from a shortlist of eight finalists and won the award for its export of Australian-made health supplements to Greater China.
Specialising in the manufacture, wholesale and export of health supplements and skin care products, Homart Pharmaceuticals currently manufactures more than 100 products and exports throughout various Asian countries.
EFIC Chief Executive Officer Angus Armour is proud of Homart Pharmaceuticals’ achievement, given the challenging conditions Australian exporters have faced over the past year.
Now in its eighth year, the Endeavour Awards celebrate and recognise the achievements of industry leaders in their drive to achieve 'best practice' and excellence in manufacturing. Winners are chosen from 13 categories including Exporter of the Year, Environmental Solution of the Year and Most Innovative Manufacturing Company.
