Exporter of the Year Competition to include a category for Halaal Products

The Cape Chamber’s annual Exporter of the Year competition will break new ground this year with a special award for exporters of Halaal products.

The new award will be sponsored by Wesgro and will tie in with a major conference on the Halaal industry in the Cape Town International Convention Centre.

We are delighted to work with Wesgro to promote local industries and inject more growth into the Western Cape Economy. This is the 28th year of the competition and it is a pleasure to have Wesgro aboard.

Entries for the competition close on Friday, 24 August 2018 and the names of the winners in all categories will be announced at a gala banquet at the Westin Grand hotel on Wednesday, 17 October 2018.

The main trophy, the Cape Chamber of Commerce Exporter of the Year trophy and a cash prize, will go to the big or small exporter who performs best according to the judge’s criteria. In addition, there are prizes for the best engineering/manufacturing company and for the best non-engineering exporter.

There are also trophies for the best small exporter, the most innovative exporter, a design award, the best exporters into Africa and the most transformed exporting company. Entrants can win more than one award.
