Lord Mayor’s Business Awards, Brisbane: Genics wins Product Innovation Award

We’re thrilled to announce that Genics has collected another feather for our cap, taking home the Product Innovation Award at the Lord Mayor’s Business Awards last week.

The Lord Mayor’s Business Awards are hosted annually by the City of Brisbane through the Brisbane Economic Development Agency. The awards recognise outstanding companies driving positive change for the future. Now in its 18th year, the awards have honoured 157 businesses and economic leaders across a wide range of industries.

The 2023 Lord Mayor’s Business Awards winners, including Genics, were announced at the Gala Dinner last Friday, October 20. Speaking at the ceremony on Friday, Lord Mayor Adrian Schrinner said that the awards celebrated the unwavering pursuit of innovation and creativity in the Brisbane business community.

“Small and medium businesses continue to face immense challenges as the cost of living rises, but Brisbane’s businesses are showing incredible resilience,” Cr Schrinner said. “The 2023 awards once again recognise world-class innovators and change-makers who are driving Brisbane’s economic future. Their dedication to sustainability, growth, and community impact is inspiring and showcases the immense talent of individuals and organisations within our city. These awards are a way for our city to recognise the unwavering commitment of our business network in curating an environment where innovation, technology, creativity, and sustainability shine.”

Genics was presented with the “Accenture Australia Product Innovation Award” at the gala ceremony. This award recognises Genics for “providing early pathogen detection, biosecurity management and breeding programs for the national and global shrimp industry.”

Genics’ Chairman Roger Sayers was in attendance to receive Genics’ award on behalf of the company. In his remarks from the podium, he noted Genics continued commitment to biotechnology innovation and thanked the City of Brisbane for its continued support of local businesses and job creation.
