Malaysian fruit importer Chop Tong Guan was awarded "the Importer of the Year" by Asiafruit Magazine and ASIA FRUIT LOGISTICA, which is the unique annual pan-Asian awards for the fresh produce business.

John Hey, editor of Asiafruit Magazine, says the Asia Fruit Award winners have been chosen for their outstanding work in their respective and highly competitive fields, and have displayed ground-breaking efforts that must be recognized not only on a regional stage, but also internationally. "It means a lot to us because it reaffirms our business principles and direction. It also recognizes our team's dedication to their work and our supplier and clientele's trust in us."--------Koay Swee Aik, Chop Tong Guan's managing director.
