David Larkin at the 2012 Premier’s NSW Export Awards
Atron Enterprises was recognised for the fourth consecutive year at the 2012 Premier’s NSW Export Awards held last week. The Sydney based non-packer exporter and branded beef marketer was the State winner in the awards’ agribusiness category, for outstanding export achievement in the field of agricultural products, services and technology.
Atron is a privately-owned company established in 2007 engaged in livestock producing, beef processing (via a service kill at Northern Cooperative Meat Co, Casino) and marketing, using a suite of brands including Condabri, Brenton, Spring Grove and Premi-Yum Black. More than 70pc of Atron’s beef is exported. Executive director of the Export Council of Australia, Ian Murray, said the 2012 winners of the Premier’s NSW Export Awards were role models for other businesses in the State.
The innovation, persistence, and focus they had exhibited in taking on the world and winning - in a period where the A$ is high and economic recovery still very fragile in many markets - was testament to their tenacity, he said. Atron managing director David Larkin dedicated the award to the company’s talented and committed team, as well as the company’s producers, processors and customers.
