New Zealand story award

We’re a FINALIST in the 2023 New Zealand International Business Awards.

September, 2023

September 2023

TranzAlpine Honey is honoured to have been selected as a finalist in one of New Zealand’s most prestigious awards for export businesses,  the 2023 New Zealand International Business Awards.

This is no small feat for our small team of organic family beekeepers from Mid Canterbury.

As fifth-generation family beekeepers and New Zealanders, we are so proud to be recognised alongside our fellow finalists in the Brand Storytelling category and so many other exceptional New Zealand businesses.

The Awards are delivered by New Zealand Trade and Enterprise | Te Taurapa Tūhono (NZTE),

Aotearoa New Zealand’s international business development agency.

They have run for more than 50 years, and exist to celebrate and recognise the success, vision and determination of New Zealand businesses on the world stage.

“It was a real privilege to hear from some remarkable people and businesses in judging this year’s Awards. It’s not easy to pick out finalists from as strong a field of entrants as we had, but we think Aotearoa New Zealand should be proud of the calibre of businesses that are representing us in international markets day in and day out.

The New Zealand International Business Awards are all about celebrating those successes, both in their own right and because they represent the contribution that all exporters are making to our communities and our country.

We’re very proud of all our finalists and it’ll be great to bring them and the export community together in November to celebrate success and recognise the best of the best for 2023.”

Convenor of Judges David Downs

“Our team is buzzing with the news! We are just a small organic honey operation based in Ashburton that produces our honey the old-school way. So this is nothing short of a huge accolade for us.
Our ethos has always been first and foremost – the conservation of our pollinators. Five generations of commitment to organic practices and 30 years of being organically certified is something we are very passionate about.
As New Zealand’s #1 Organic Honey Brand, we are proud to produce the highest quality organic honey that doesn’t come at the expense of the environment or our bees. Right from the start, 113 years ago, we knew this was going to be a lifelong commitment.”
“Every time someone chooses organic and New Zealand-made a vote is cast to protect our pollinators, boost our biodiversity and help us to reduce our impact so that we can produce healthy food without compromising future generations’ ability to do the same.” Yuriy Soshnikov – MD of TranzAlpine Organics
