Since 1986 the Governor’s Excellence in Exporting Awards have recognized companies and organizations of all sizes that have shown superior performance in exporting or heightened awareness of exporting as a vital component of Ohio’s economy.

This recognition would not have been possible without the efforts of all the Sweet employees. I am so proud of the teamwork, cooperation and hard work that was necessary to accomplish such great results.
