GMP was proudly nominated as the finalist for three awards for NZTE International Business awards.
Celebrating the passion, vision and new approaches that New Zealand businesses are taking to achieve international success, the Awards are run by New Zealand Trade and Enterprise (NZTE) and its Strategic Partner ANZ.
NZTE is the Government’s international business development agency, helping to boost global reach and build capability so our companies can grow bigger, better, faster. They leverage their connections and government influence on behalf of businesses, and apply local knowledge.
The New Zealand International Business Awards are organised by NZTE, it is one of the biggest business awards in the year. This award is considered to be extremely authoritative and have been running since 2009. The purpose of the award is to celebrate New Zealand business success in the world and recognise professional excellence and innovative practice. They provide an opportunity for New Zealand businesses to benchmark performance, build capability and boost employee morale.
Therefore, GMP was extremely honored to have been nominated as one of the finalists, competing with some of the top enterprises in New Zealand.
Our General Manager, Ravinesh Kumaran was presented the finalist certificates for 3 categories on 13th March in a breakfast hosted by NZTE at the Better by Design CEO Summit held at Villa Maria.
GMP was nominated as finalist for three awards we have applied:
• ANZ Best Business Operating Internationally – Over $50m Award
• Excellence in Innovation Award
• Excellence in Operations Award
Peter Chrisp, Chief Executive of NZTE, said the diversity exemplifies an increased appetite from businesses to push frontiers and embrace innovation.
“In this year’s finalists we can see companies who are going premium with new business models and who are leveraging the New Zealand brand. They’re building businesses that are offering more tailored and bespoke products and services and the results are evident in their success.”
David Green, Managing Director Institutional at ANZ New Zealand, said: “The great diversity of this year’s finalists reflects the significant potential for New Zealand businesses when they take the time to understand offshore markets, pursue new growth opportunities and innovate to develop products that meet the needs of end-consumers. Their success is contributing to New Zealand’s growing achievements in doing business globally, which is supporting job creation, economic growth and a stronger future.”
GMP was the winner of ‘Most Innovative Approach’ award in 2010.
The company has shown incredible growth since its inception, applying ingenuity to business process and growth strategy. High standards of quality, increased customer support and growth has enabled recognition from numerous government bodies, industry bodies and business associations leading to numerous awards. Over the years the company has been conferred with a number of business excellence awards and recognition for significant contribution to the natural products industry and manufacturing sector.
We believe GMP has become a key player in the industry and demonstrated to other New Zealand companies, that small companies with no large corporate type international backings can still be successful if they persevere and work hard. Our motto is “To work harder for your success” and we strongly believe that this culture is important for success. Our success has emanated into multiple business awards and business introductions to some of the largest public and state owned companies in China. In addition, we have had multiple visits from parliament members, prime minister, Trade Minister Fonterra and other high profile people from New Zealand and China that have shown interest in the GMP story. We believe that we are significant contributors to the Nutraceutical and Infant Formula industry and our pharmaceutical background gives that advantage.
Our winning formula is putting food safety as the foundation of our business and aim for perfection in every aspect of production. We aim to deliver only the best to the consumers.
