The ‘Export Lion’ is the annual prize awarded by Flanders Investment & Trade to Flemish companies that have been most successful in terms of export during the previous year. The honour is given to those companies that have seen the highest growth in their export sales, but other criteria are also taken into account. This includes the level of sustainability as well as the level of innovation shown while achieving the sales objectives.
The Export Lions are presented during a prestigious award ceremony. The Minister-President of the region is present, as are the leading captains of industry and business from all over Flanders. The guests are also joined by the entire international network of 70 Flemish economic representatives from around the world.
Sofico is nominated in the category companies with more than 50 employees.
The Export Lions are awarded on September 16, 2015.
