2020 Export Awards
Despite 2020 being a challenging year for businesses, Australian exporters have continually demonstrated their remarkable capacity to adapt and thrive under difficult circumstances.
On December 8, Marinova was one of a select number of exporters to share its story at the Tasmanian Resilience and Innovation Breakfast. The event, hosted by the Tasmanian Deputy Premier and Minister for Trade, the Hon Jeremy Rockliff MP, was designed to draw together the vibrant Tasmanian export community and celebrate unique stories and successes. Its focus was to celebrate Tasmania’s truly extraordinary achievers.
As part of the event, Marinova’s CEO & Managing Director, Mr Paul Garrott, joined a special panel speaking about resilience and innovation during the COVID-19 pandemic. “Marinova experienced extraordinary global demand for its seaweed extracts during 2020,” explained Mr Garrott. “Our challenge has been to leverage this demand whilst maintaining continuity across all facets of the business. Specific obstacles that the company addressed included increasing our manufacturing capacity and securing the integrity of the company’s international supply chain, whilst simultaneously expanding our already significant R&D program.”
“Marinova’s dedication to fucoidan science has never been greater,” said Mr Garrott. “At a time when many companies were scaling back operations, Marinova was actively increasing its global R&D activities. The company remains fully committed to supporting its products with credible scientific evidence and our agility has enabled us to leverage the market opportunities created by the current pandemic.”
