A Western Slope distiller is among the latest winners of awards recognizing Colorado companies for their success in exporting.
Montanya Distillers in Crested Butte won the New-to-Export Award.
Northern Feed and Bean Co. in Lucerne won the Experienced Exporter Award in an annual program conducted by the Colorado Department of Agriculture. The awards were scheduled for presentation as part of the Governor’s Forum on Colorado Agriculture Feb. 22 in Denver.
“We had many good candidates this year, and we are proud to recognize these two companies for their hard work around the world,” said John Addison, international marketing specialist for the department. “This awards program is a way to celebrate the export successes of Colorado’s agricultural community.”
Montanya Distillers was honored for marketing its rums in Europe, overcoming obstacles to export to a logistically challenging market.
