Burnie’s Hellyers Road Distillery has been named 2022 Tasmanian Exporter of the Year at a gala event in Hobart. Tasmania’s export sector is booming and this is fantastic recognition for the great work that Hellyers do for our State, especially on the North West.

Hellyers Road took out the title after being named the Small Business Award category winner earlier in the evening.

Importantly, the benefits are spread right across the State, with the winners of this year’s 13 category awards hailing from Huntingfield to Wesley Vale, Battery Point to Ouse and Longford to Derwent Park – showing that Tasmanians statewide have what it takes to be highly competitive in world markets.

Winners were recognised across a wide range of industries including fashion, food and beverages, animal safety products, advanced technology and defence and biological services.

The winners of the 10 national categories at the Tasmanian Export Awards progress to the 60th Australian Export Awards and will head to Canberra to represent Tasmania on the national stage in November.

With Tasmanian exports exceeding $6 billion across more than 100 markets around the globe, a 23.5 per cent year-on-year increase, our exporting businesses deserve the recognition that comes from being part of the Tasmanian and national Export Awards.

The awards are also an important way to encourage more Tasmanian businesses to export, leading to a stronger economy and more jobs, while allowing Tasmanian companies to reach a level of success that could not be achieved in the domestic market alone.

Thanks to our 2022 Tasmanian Export Awards sponsors and our Awards Partner, TasPorts, who is integral to the success of many of Tasmania’s exporting businesses.
