Federal recognition for WA exporter

WESTERN Australian-based Australian Foods Company P/L (AFC) has been recognised for its outstanding export achievements in this year’s Trade Outcomes and Objectives Statement, which was officially launched by Minister for Trade Mark Vaile last month.

The Statement highlights the achievements of Australian exporters in 2000 in building a platform for strong export growth in 2001.

AFC managing director Pavan Shivnani said inclusion in the Trade Outcomes and Objectives Statement was the “hallmark” of the company’s export achievement.

“In less than four years our organisation has grown from a one-man operation to a multi-million dollar export company employing more than 10 staff,” he said.

Established in January 1998, AFC generated more than A$8 million in export revenue during 1999-2000.

AFC is one of WA’s leading agribusinesses marketing companies and has a reputation for supplying premium quality cereals, pulses, oilseeds and stockfeeds to countries in the Middle East, South-East Asia and Europe and the Indian sub-continent.

“A large part of our success is due to our association with the Australian Trade Commission (Austrade),” Mr Shivnani said.

“Currently we are negotiating through the Austrade Taiwan office to supply more than A$2 million worth of red sorghum for local wine production in the region.”
