Danone Baby Nutrition, Macroom was presented with the Excellence Through People (ETP) award by Minister of State for Small Business John Perry at a ceremony last Friday.

The Minister joined Maurice Buckley, Chief Executive of NSAI (National Standards Authority of Ireland), to present the awards, and to recognise the importance of standards in the current economy.

"Standards affect every aspect of our day-to-day lives and are vital in the current economic climate. Implementing them in business enables companies to improve their efficiency and competitiveness, minimise waste and reduce costs.

There is a return on investment - certification to standards help to create a level playing field, allowing SMEs to compete with much larger companies, attract new customers, and access global markets," Minister Perry said.

In 2012, NSAI published more than 1,600 standards and sold over 12,000 publications across a broad range of sectors, bringing their library to in excess of 23,000.

NSAI invites members of the business community and the general public to get involved in the development of standards by visiting Your Standards, Your Say on www.nsai.ie.
