Jason Smith, Managing Director at Bedfont, says, “We are so proud and thrilled to have been named International Business of the Year 2019. There are a lot of great companies out there and we didn’t expect to be recognised for 2 years in a row. This award wouldn’t be possible without the hard work and dedication of the Bedfont family and its distributors, its thanks to them we can continue to innovate healthcare worldwide.”
This accolade is Bedfont’s 3rd regional exporting recognition and its 7 th exporting award so far.
