BURRADOO-based company Hot Rock Dining International will be competing for recognition in the Australian Export Awards in December.
Hot Rock Dining won the Emerging Exporter Award at the NSW Premiers Export Awards last month, allowing them to be in the Australian final of the Emerging Exporter Award, sponsored by AusIndustry.
Hot Rock Dining director, Venus Hilder, said she felt honoured by representing NSW at the national level.
“The enormity of this recognition has undoubtedly renewed our enthusiasm as a team, it brings us more inspiration and determination to stay-in-touch with our vision in terms of what we would like to ultimately achieve in the global market,” Ms Hilder said.
“I would like to thank Australian Institute of Export, Austrade, DSRD and Tradestart for their valuable assistance. It is their combined ongoing practical education and training they provide, along with a wide range of export services and informative networking and recognition events that assists companies like Hot Rock International Pty Ltd grow on the global export platform.”
The federal Minister for Trade, Simon Crean, said the 13 finalists from NSW employed 5,500 people and generated export earnings of over $3 billion.
“That’s a significant contribution to lifting Australia’s trade performance and the Australian
Export Awards serve as a timely reminder that successfully engaging in the global economy is vital for our ongoing prosperity,” Mr Crean said.
There are 84 national finalists competing across 13 award categories in this year’s Australian Export Awards. Each of the finalists has already won their respective state or territory export awards.
