Croatian exporters held their 17th annual convention on the topic of “Export Excellence” on 4 July 2022 at the Westin Hotel in Zagreb, where top exporters of 2021 were awarded the prestigious “Golden Key” award. Among those recognised was JGL, which won in the category of Most Innovative Exporter.
“We are honoured to have once again received recognition for our efforts in driving and creating innovation, which we use to continuously improve the quality of our products and increase the satisfaction of our customers and patients in the 60 markets around the world in which we operate. We consider this a recognition from our peers for all the hard work that JGL puts into increasing exports, as well as steadily opening new sales channels and new markets. We are especially delighted by the award as it comes during uncertain times for businesses and gives us an incentive to persevere and stay agile in the face of change. The credit for the award should go to the JGL team, who have invested significant effort in order to remain consistent with the ambitious vision of creating a better, richer and more reliable future, and continue to boldly invest in innovation – a business imperative and an integral part of the company’s strategy,” said CEO Mislav Vučić after the awards ceremony.
The JGL Group ended 2021 with total revenue of HRK 1.1 billion and a profit before tax of more than HRK 100 million. Nearly 85 per cent of its earnings from core business was generated outside Croatia.
“I would like to congratulate all the winners and nominees for their invaluable contributions, not only to the development of domestic industry, but also to the national economy as a whole, and for establishing themselves as top exporters in the country,” Vučić concluded.
