Bluepharma has been named a National Champion for Portugal in the European Business Awards sponsored by RSM; a prestigious competition supported by business leaders, academics, media and political representatives from across Europe.

The European Business Awards, now in its 9thyear, engaged with over 32,000 business from 33 European countries this year and 678 companies from across Europe have been named as National Champions; going through to the second phase of the competition.

Bluepharma’s R&D-based strategy allows to target the most demanding markets of over 40 worldwide territories with an export rate of 82%. These values have won Bluepharma the award in the category Import/Export.

Paulo Barradas Rebelo, CEO of Bluepharma, states: “We are very proud to have been selected to represent Portugal as a National Champion. The European Business Awards are widely recognised as the showcase for Europe’s most dynamic companies and we are now looking forward to the next round of the competition where we can explain in more depth how our success is being achieved”.

Adrian Tripp, CEO of the European Business Awards said: “Congratulations to Bluepharma and all the companies that have been selected to represent their country as National Champions, they play an important part in creating a stronger business community”.

The next round requires the National Champions to make a presentation video, telling their unique story and explaining their business success. The judges will view all of the National Champions’ videos, and award the best of each group the coveted ‘Ruban d’Honneur’ status. Ruban d’Honneur recipients will then go on to be part of the grand final in 2016.

Separately, the National Champion videos will be made public on the European Business Awards website www.businessawardseurope.comas part of a two stage public vote, which will decide the ‘National Public Champions’ for each country. Last year, over 170,000 votes were cast as companies from across Europe were publicly supported by their clients, staff and peers, as well as the general public.
