Bioriginal won the Achievement in Business Excellence (ABEX) Award in Export at the 30th anniversary of the awards, hosted by the Saskatchewan Chamber of Commerce on Oct. 26.
Bioriginal was founded 20 years ago in Saskatchewan, Canada, and has grown to be a global leader in delivering omega solutions to the food and nutraceutical industries, exporting both locally grown and globally sourced ingredients, such as flaxseeds, coconut and krill oil. The company was recently recognized for its international business growth and expansion, winning the Achievement in Business Excellence (ABEX) Award in the Export category. “Export has been a cornerstone of our business since we were founded in 1993, and we’re excited to be recognized for our achievement in this category from such a prestigious and long standing business award program” said Joe Vidal, CEO of Bioriginal.
Bioriginal remains headquartered in Saskatchewan, but has expanded over the past 20 years and currently has offices and facilities in Canada, United States, Europe, South America and Asia. Export is the backbone of Bioriginal’s business, comprising 87 percent of total sales outside Canada, and 99 percent of total sales exported outside of Saskatchewan. It was for this significant contribution to the export industry of Saskatchewan that Bioriginal won the ABEX Export award.
“With the growing global demand for omegas, such as the exponential growth we’re seeing in krill and coconut oil sales, Bioriginal is strongly positioned to meet these demands and grow in both current and new global markets,” Vidal said. “Our strategy is to continue building and developing our global reach and expansion into new markets, and we anticipate that our Export business will only continue to grow.”
