The winner in the small business category is Lavan Furniture Ltd, whereas the award in the medium business category went to Pro Design Ltd and Ustad Furniture Ltd.
The Ministry of Business, Enterprise and Cooperatives, in collaboration with the Ministry of Industry and Commerce held award function.
The main objectives of the competition are to recognise businesses that are making continuous efforts to improve management and operational practices and to identify role models who adopt world-class practices for others to emulate.
Business minister Jim Seetaram said, “Winning a Business Excellence Award helps in raising the profile of the enterprise, attract new clients, enhance its reputation, and instil that vital ingredient for success and trust.”
He added, “The Business Excellence Award is not about chasing awards to fill the trophy cabinet, or logos for your letterhead. Nor is it a theoretical or academic exercise divorced from the real work of the organisation.”
He further explained that the Business Excellence is all about making an organisation perform better, earn higher profits, achieve success and attain its aims.
“It’s also about delivering real bottom-line improvements in the performance of private sector organisations,”he said to encourage the business representatives present.
Minister of Industry Commerce Cader Sayed Hossen, said the number of applicants for this competition is increasing, that measures have been taken to assist enterprises who strive for excellence and they should take advantage of them.
The government will always be there for further developments in businesses.
