Garden City Export And Import Remains Hopeful For A Win

Garden City Export and Import Limited remains positive for a win at the 2015 Westpac Prime Minister’s Exporter of the Year Awards.

The company, operating out of Valelevu, has been applying in the agricultural sector awards categories almost every year but has unfortunately not won any awards as yet.

But director, Aman Ram, remains positive and has applied once again this year with the belief: “We know our winning day will come. We are keeping our fingers crossed to get at least one award one day.”

“Winning the award anytime will be a great achievement for our company. It will give a big recognition and marketing purposes which will be an advantage,” he said.

The gala dinner awards event will be held at the Sheraton Denarau Convention Centre this Saturday.

The company has been in export business for the past 12 years.

Mr Ram said their export earnings currently range from $3 million to $4 million per year.

“Our current markets are Australia and New Zealand but we are keen to get the US markets as well,” he said.

 

History

The company has been in business for 12 progressive years.

Mr Ram and his wife, Roshni Ram, the Directors who used to work for Grow Fiji Exports as Pack House Manager, were given an opportunity by Yee Wah Sing to commence their own business in 2003.

In the beginning, Mr Ram used to process and pack for other exporters and slowly he managed to attract Australia and New Zealand Importers and since then he prospered in export business.

The main business activity is processing, packing and exporting of fresh and frozen root crops such as taro and cassava and fresh and frozen vegetables as well as coconuts.
