A company specialising in high precision measurement technology for controlled environment agriculture has taken home the supreme winner award at the New Zealand International Business Awards 2021.
Bluelab, a Bay of Plenty-based business dedicated to “the art of growing for a healthier world” has been operating for more than 30 years and is internationally recognised as an industry leader. The company provides tools and systems to measure critical factors like pH, temperature, and moisture levels when growing plants in controlled environments.
Bluelab’s products are designed, manufactured, and exported globally from its base of operations in Tauranga. The company previously won the Excellence in the Innovation category at the New Zealand International Business Awards 2019.
As well as the Supreme Award chosen by a panel of judges, Bluelab earlier won a category award for Excellence in Digital Commerce Transformation, presented by the minister for Economic and Regional Development, Stuart Nash.
Convenor of judges for the awards, David Downs, says: “After an incredibly challenging two years in business, it was a pleasure to be able to recognise our extraordinary finalists and reveal the winners of this year’s awards.
“These businesses have really done Aotearoa proud, they’re making remarkable progress in international markets, and they’re bringing the results of that progress home to benefit all of us. I think that is worth shouting from the rooftops.”
