Giving priority to a much needed requirement to recognise institutions in the agricultural sector, the National Agribusiness Council will be organising the annual Agribusiness Awards on 25 August 2013, for the eighth consecutive year, concurrently with the Ag-Biz and Pro food trade fair at BMICH.

Last year’s National gold award was won by Kurunegala Plantations Limited for their outstanding performance during the year as a state owned organisation. The silver award went to HJS Condiments (Pvt) Ltd., for their remarkable growth along with earning foreign exchange to the country.

CIC feeds (Pvt) Ltd., won the National bronze award for serving the animal husbandry sector with quality feeds. Special merit award was won by Jinasena (Pvt) Ltd., for their outstanding innovation of ‘Processed Tea Cutter’.  

The National Agribusiness Awards are in recognition of performance and contribution by the formal business sector towards the development of agribusiness in Sri Lanka. The awards will be sector based, grouped into small, medium and large category while segmented into the sectors of input suppliers, services, producers, processors, and marketers.

The selection will be based on business overview, financial management, human resource management, social impact and sector specific performance. The applications are evaluated by a competent panel of agriculturalists, accountants and marketing consultants from the private and public sectors.

Application forms are available at the National Agribusiness Council Secretariat or could be downloaded at
