Wize Monkey Wins “Best International Trade” at Small Business BC Awards, Looks to Continue Winning Streak at NEXTY Awards in California Next Month
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE, February 24th, 2017 - Vancouver, BC – After a public vote and a panel of judges, Wize Monkey won “Best International Trade” at the Small Business BC Awards. They're honoured to be among the top small businesses in BC, let alone the thousands of them that trade internationally.
The founders went up on stage and introduced everyone to Wize Miguel, their official mascot. They dedicated the award to the farmers they work with on their partner Enrique's farm, and all of the stakeholders who have worked so hard to create their multi-award winning product of Coffee Leaf Tea.
Hot off winning the “Emerging Specialty Food Product of the Year” award at the Specialty Food Expo and Conference earlier this month, they look to keep their winning streak going into Expo West, the world's largest natural products expo, where they're a finalist for 'Best Mission-Based Product' at the NEXTY Awards. This will be Wize Monkey's official debut in the United States, a key market for the future of Coffee Leaf Tea and this burgeoning brand.
"We’re honoured to win an SBBC award and excited to share our multi-award winning innovation with the best retailers in the US next month at Expo. Hopefully we come home with some NEXTY hardware, too!" - Max Rivest, CEO
