Meyn has been selected as national champion in the prestigious 2013/14 European Business Awards competition. Meyn will be one of the 14 national champions representing the Netherlands in the category Import/Export Award.

The European Business Awards has identified some of Europe's brightest businesses based on their ability to demonstrate the three core principles at the heart of the awards program. The panel of judges was looking for organizations to represent The Netherlands who exhibited the highest level of innovation, business excellence and sustainability.

Han Defauwes, managing director at Meyn: "We are delighted to represent the Netherlands. We have been operating for over 50 years in the poultry processing industry and it's really an honor to be recognized for our successful global partnerships, efforts and achievements in this competitive marketplace."

Adrian Tripp, CEO of the European Business Awards, says: "Over the past seven years we've received an incredibly high standard of entries from organizations that are passionate about their business. However, very few get the chance to fly the flag for their country and compete across Europe to be recognized as one of Europe's finest. It really is an exceptional accolade to be picked as a national champion and together with our sponsors and supporters we're looking forward to seeing Meyn in the next round."

To advance in the competition this year, all national champions will submit a video entry for viewing and assessment by a judging panel. In addition, the public will also be able to vote online for their favorite national champion from each country. These companies will become national public champions and one will go on to become the European public champion. Voting begins in November 2013.
