Victorian Hall of Fame awards to celebrate economic growth

The Victorian Manufacturing Hall of Fame Awards will honour
advanced, export-oriented companies contributing to the state’s economic
growth, and feature six new categories this year.

New state industry minister and MP for Mill Park Lily D’Ambrosio
announced that nominations were open on Friday.

“I would encourage
Victorian businesses across the six sectors which have potential for
extraordinary economic growth to nominate for the awards by visiting the
Business Victoria website,” she said in a statement.

The new categories would recognise sectors with high growth
potential, including food & fibre processing and medical technology &
pharmaceuticals.

“Manufacturing
contributes $25 billion to the Victorian economy. This award recognises forward
thinking manufacturers who are raising the bar in the industry, to help ensure
the future of manufacturing in Victoria,” said D’Ambrosio.

Among last year’s winners were SRX Global (Australia) and
Laucke Flour. Inductees into the Hall of Fame included Flavour Makers, Maton,
and Boundary Bend Olives.

Nominations are open until February 13. The awards are open
to all manufacturing businesses based in the state.
