Each of these successful South Australian businesses have been recognised for their outstanding export success. Many of the Business SA Export Award winners from previous years have also gone on to achieve national success and won gongs at the Australian Export Awards, including SEAPA, Sweat, Torbreck Vintners, Almondco Australia and Prism Defence.
