Finalists from 160 nominations have been announced for Queensland’s Export Awards 2021.
According to Queensland premier Annastacia Palaszczuk, there was a total of 160 nominations, more than for any other state’s or territory’s respective exports awards program this year. Queensland’s export awards were cancelled year due to the Covid-19 pandemic.
Finalists in the Manufacturing and Advanced Materials Award category were Frosty Boy (also in the final for the Agribusiness, Food and Beverages), Helitak Fire Fighting Equipment (also in contention for the Regional Exporter Award), Knotwood (also in the Sustainability Award category) and Riviera Australia.
Palaszczuk said that export businesses in the state “support one in five Queensland jobs, with about 40 per cent of the 7,473 goods exports based in regional Queensland.”
Winners from each of the 13 categories go on to the Australian Export Awards in November.
