WA Lamb processing co-operative WAMMCO International has taken out the Agribusiness Export Award at the 2004 Western Australian Industry and Exporter of the Year Award.
WAMMCO Chairman Dawson Bradford accepted the award at a gala ceremony at the Perth Convention Centre on Friday October 22.
Speaking at the ceremony Mr Bradford was delighted the co-operative had received recognition for a solid year of performance, in particular with expansion of sales into the premium US market.
“WA producers have responded to the call for heavier lambs and a consistent supply 12 months of the year allowing WAMMCO to build important supply relationships with major US retailers” Mr Bradford said. “Producers are now benefiting from increased returns”.
WAMMCO is a farmer owned co-operative formed in 1999 with over 1000 Western Australian producer members. The business focuses on export of high value chilled lamb products supplied into 50 countries around the world.
WAMMCO is now a finalist in the Australian Export Awards with winners to be announced in Brisbane on 9 December 2004.
