Prime Minister’s Agriculture Exporter of the Year Award winner, Ram Sami and Sons, says the award is an incentive to expand its operations.

The company which won the Exporter to the Pacific Award last year, was this year recognised for its effort in boosting Fiji’s agriculture industry through effective and efficient production and for bringing high amounts of foreign exchange.

Group accountant Upendra Gounder told FijiLive that winning an award in a new category was an extra motivation for the company.

“We are really proud to win our second award in two years and this reflects the company’s commitment to the export sector,” said Gounder.

“We are 100% locally owned and have grown tremendously from a small backyard chicken farm set up 45 years ago to a commercial organization which exports to the Pacific Islands and is a major supplier in the domestic market.”

“Our company has grown from strength to strength and we are looking forward to grow further in the coming years.”

Ram Sami and Sons Limited specialises in the production, distribution and marketing of farm fresh eggs and poultry products.
