Organised by The Star Media Group (which runs Malaysia's mainstream English medium newspaper The Star) together with other independent and governmental agencies, SOBA recognises Malaysian small-medium business and their immense contribution to the Malaysian economy.
The 8th edition of SOBA (2017) sought to honour deserving SMEs that have withstood a challenging year and emerged as champions in their industries.
ExcelVite took part in the Best Innovation Award category in view of its unique extraction technology which ensures the feedstock crude palm oil is fully utilised in the production of its flagship products - EVNol/EVNol SupraBio (Tocotrienol) and EVTene (Mixed-Carotene), as well as Renewable Energy and Oleo-Chemical Products.
With strong clinical studies and brand recognition of EVNol/EVNol SupraBio and EVTene in markets overseas, ExcelVite also won Gold in the Best Global Market Award category.
"We are honoured and humbled to be awarded two prestigious gold awards at SOBA 2017. The fact that ExcelVite is able to produce and supply palm phytonutrients — especially tocotrienols at a reasonable price point — is a testament in itself of our contribution to the oil palm industry."
"We are able to bring tocotrienols to the general public that will benefit from its unique health benefits (super vitamin E with unique health benefits published in more than 1300 scientific publications)."
"Regarding engineering achievement, ExcelVite has broken barriers in terms of what is possible with regard to phytonutrient extraction from palm oil products," said W.H. Leong, CEO, ExcelVite Sdn. Bhd.
"This prestigious award is a testament that we are on the right track and will definitely drive us to continue playing an active role to propel ExcelVite to the pinnacle of palm nutraceutical excellence. I would also like to dedicate this award to my fellow employees for their continued support, hard work and commitment in this mission," added Leong.
