ExportNZ has announced the finalists for this year’s ExportNZ ASB Wellington Export Awards.

The ExportNZ ASB Wellington Export Awards recognise and honour the remarkable work of exporters in the Central North Island, showcasing their contributions to New Zealand’s global reputation. Now in its eighth year, the awards provide a vital role in celebrating success and fostering growth in the export sector.

“This is the only dedicated Export Awards in the Central North Island, stretching from Whanganui to the Wellington Region,” says Aaron McLeigh, ExportNZ Senior Relationship Manager for Wellington.

“Our exporters are the heroes of our nation’s economy, and the ExportNZ ASB Wellington Export Awards are all about hearing the stories of these remarkable finalists. Their dedication and resilience have not only strengthened Aotearoa New Zealand’s reputation beyond its borders but have also fuelled our growth and prosperity.”

The Export Awards are judged by a panel of experienced exporting specialists drawn from ExportNZ, NZTE and ASB with combined exporting experience of over 80 years.

“The judges have been full of praise for the finalists they have interviewed, noting their tenacity and resilience in facing challenges head-on-supply chain disruptions, market fluctuations, and global uncertainties – yet they’ve adapted, innovated, and persevered. Each finalist represents a story of determination and success, and we can’t wait to celebrate them all and crown the Exporter of the Year at the awards dinner at Parliament in June,” adds McLeigh.
