Pacific Cement Ltd is looking to new export markets in Australasia having been recognised for its efforts at the 2014 Westpac Prime Minister's Exporter of the Year Awards.

The company, which operates a 0.215Mta grinding unit on the Pacific island of Fiji, received a 'Recognition Award' for the first time at the ceremony hosted by Investment Fiji and sponsored by the Westpac Banking Corporation.

Commenting on the award, general manager Sonni Dutt said: "We have been trying to achieve an award from this event and this is the first ever one we got and we are very proud of being recognised,” he said.

Mr Dutt told the Fiji Times that next year the company, which supplies cement to more than 15 countries in the Pacific, plans to "export more into developed countries like Australia."

Markets currently under Pacific Cement’s export coverage include Samoas, Tonga, Solomon Islands, Vanuatu, Kiribati, Tuvalu, Wallis and Futuna and Nauru as well as New Zealand at present.
