U.S. Department of Commerce Secretary Gary Locke hailed Cyanotech’s significant export achievement as the spirulina and astaxanthin supplier received the Presidential ‘E’ Award for Exports.

“President Obama’s National Export Initiative (NEI), which aims to double U.S. exports by 2015 in support of several million American jobs, is a robust, forward-looking trade agenda with an emphasis on domestic job growth,”​ said Locke.

“Cyanotech is being honored today for making significant contributions toward fulfilling that agenda.”

“I congratulate you on your significant export achievement. It is businesses like yours that will help us meet or exceed the President’s NEI goals. Your firm provides an example we hope more American companies will follow,”​ he added.

In a ceremony in Washington DC recently, 27 US companies were presented with the ‘E’ Award. The program was established by President Kennedy in 1961.

“We are honored that President Obama and the Commerce Department have recognized our achievements in exporting”​ said Cyanotech’s President and CEO, Brent Bailey. “Our Hawaiian Spirulina and BioAstin Natural Astaxanthin products are now distributed in more than 60 countries on six continents.”

“Our valued distributors around the world recognize Cyanotech’s leadership position in Spirulina and Astaxanthin quality as well as our superior customer service and branding,”​ added Dr Gerald Cysewski, the company’s founder and chief scientific officer.
