Winners of the Saskatchewan Chamber of Commerce’s 2009 Achievement in Business Excellence (ABEX) awards were announced in Saskatoon over the weekend, which included a local company.
Gravelbourg’s Mustard Capital Incorporated received the Export Award, for demonstrating exceptional performance in exporting goods or services outside Saskatchewan.
On Monday, Company CEO Tom Halpenny told the Times-Herald said for such a young company (founded in 2005 and in operation since 2007) to win this award is a great honour and makes him “absolutely ecstatic.”

He said the award also demonstrates globally-competative companies can thrive in small prairie communities.
