An increase in the number of pearl exports to European markets resulted in J Hunter Pearls Fiji winning the Fisheries Exporter of the Year at the 2014 Westpac Prime Minister’s Exporter of the Year Awards last week.
The win adds to the recognition received in 2006, 2007 and 2008.
Leanne Hunter of J Hunter Pearls Fiji said they had been exporting pearls since 2005 and had won awards in the past but it was great to be acknowledged.
“It’s great to be acknowledged for the value we provide as exporters of a high quality Fiji Made product,” she said.
“We are also very appreciative of our government’s efforts to support exporters and the hard work done by Investment Fiji.
