The Croatian Chamber of Economy awarded the Golden Kuna Award yesterday, 21 November. The Award for business success and contribution to the Croatian economy as a whole has been conferred annually since 1993.
BEST IN THE LARGE COMPANY CATEGORY
Atlantic's Cedevita has won this valuable recognition in the large company category, in competition with companies such as Maistra, Končar distributivni i specijalni transformatori, Đuro Đaković montaža, and DS Smith Belišće.
The list of nominations was based on the calculation of established indicators; however, the overall business image of the companies, their impact on the development of the business activity to which they belong, and the contribution to the development of the Croatian economy as a whole, were all appropriately evaluated.
DEDICATION TO CEDEVITA'S EMPLOYEES
On behalf of Cedevita the award was received by the General Manager for SBU Beverages, Zvonimir Brekalo, from the hands of Croatian President Kolinda Grabar Kitarović.
"Our Cedevita celebrates its 50th birthday this year," said Zvonimir Brekalo upon receiving the award. "I take this opportunity to thank all Cedevita employees without whose effort and passion this result would not have been achieved. A big 'thank you' goes also to our partners, suppliers, distributors and buyers, who have also woven themselves into this success. And finally, there are our consumers who have been choosing our brand for half a century. We view this award as both an honour and an obligation, I hope at least for the next 50 years."
The Golden Kuna Award in the Small Business Category was awarded to Pirić Montage; in the Medium Business the winner was Nanobit; in the Innovation category it was awarded to Rasco; Zagrebačka Banka was recognized as the most successful bank, while Croatia osiguranje won the award in the Insurance Company category.
