Mr Midgley said that the whole Lifestream team was “over the moon” to have won such a prestigious export award against such quality competition but put the win down to a great brand coupled with a fantastic team spirit from an incredibly export focused company (Lifestream already exports over 65% of it’s products to over 20 countries worldwide such as Australia, the UK, Sweden, Iceland, Czech Republic, Holland, Finland, China, Korea, Singapore, Hong Kong, Malaysia, Taiwan and Thailand).
In what has been a couple of very tough years for exporters the team at Lifestream were able to grow the companies overall export sales by 18%.
In 2009 Lifestream opened up three new export markets (China, Greece and Mongolia) and launched 7 new products. Registration process is currently underway in Norway and Germany.
Lifestream was visited by the Rt. Hon MP Dr. Jonathon Coleman (Minister of Immigration, Minister of Broadcasting, Associate Minister of Tourism and Associate Minister of Health and MP for Northcote) who came along to congratulate the Lifestream team on winning the Exporter of the Year Award.
