H2coco healthy beverages recognised at awards
Lifestyle beverage brand H2coco beat out 20 other finalists to take home the manufacturing award at the 2019 Australian Small Business Champion Awards, held on 6 April in Sydney. The company’s founder and CEO David Freeman was also recognised as a finalist in the ‘Small Business Champion Entrepreneur’ category.
H2coco works alongside food scientists to develop a range of ‘better for you’ beverages that promote a healthy lifestyle.
“It’s truly an honour to accept the Champion Manufacturing award and be recognised nationally with this prestigious accolade. Winning this award is a huge privilege and acknowledges the significant team effort involved in building the H2coco business into what it is today and taking it to the next level,” Freeman said. “I’m proud to have developed a company that is making strides in the ‘better for you’ category and extending it beyond coconut water. This recognition will assist us with our plans for further global expansion.”
The Australian Small Business Champion Awards, supported by NOVA Employment and Castaway Forecasting, recognise outstanding Australian small businesses and encourage high standards of excellence in small business practice.
Steve Loe, Managing Director of Precedent Productions and founder of the awards, said they “recognise the efforts of small business people whose efforts contribute to the prosperity and vitality of communities across Australia. As a small business owner myself, I know the vision and dedication to excellence required to succeed. These traits have been displayed in abundance by all of our 2019 Small Business Champions.”
Other winners included Forestway Fresh in the fresh food category, Josh’s Rainbow Eggs in the agricultural services category and Madders Brothers Patisserie in the bakery/cake store category.
