The annual KZN Top Business Awards 2017 gala dinner was held at the Wavehouse at Gateway on 3 August 2017. The KZN Top Business, together with Standard Bank and eLan Property, compiled an impressive awards’ ceremony, which has become a highlight on the annual KwaZulu-Natal business calendar. Corobrik received the top Large Manufacturing prize at the event.

Organisations and individuals in each category were required to display success in their relationship with the economic, environmental and social spheres in KwaZulu-Natal. Factors such as brand and reputation, stakeholder relations and goodwill, environmental sustainability, social responsibility, and quality of governance were all considered. The assessment to identify the winner in each category is comprehensive, with companies supplying details across all categories.

The Large Manufacturing award was one of 16 categories celebrated at the ceremony. The categories included: agriculture, mining, large manufacturing, medium manufacturing, resources, construction, trade, transport, business services, social and community, services, tourism, municipal, government, partnership, KZN top brand and KZN leader

Corobrik managing director, Dirk Meyer, says the company greatly appreciates the award and is pleased to be able to offer a long-standing contribution to KwaZulu-Natal.

“Corobrik has been operating for 115 years and we have exciting plans to grow the business even further. We look forward to continuing to serve the province for many more years. This is the eleventh year the awards have been held to pay tribute to business contributing to KwaZulu-Natal’s economy. In previous years, Corobrik participated and won the mining category, however in 2017 we successfully competed under the Large Manufacturing sector as we believe the company is manufacturing focused rather than mining focused,” says Dirk.
