Invivo has been listed in Deloitte’s 2012 “Fast50” fastest growing New Zealand companies. Invivo wines was ranked in 24th spot in the annual list with growth of 258.9% in the past year. It is the first time since 2004 a New Zealand winery has been named in the Fast50.
Cofounder Tim Lightbourne comments “We were particularly pleased to make Deloitte’s Fast 50, our strong growth since 2008 can be attributed to an excellent team of distributors from here in New Zealand to our export markets in particular Asia, Australia and UK.“Also important have been the accolades our wines are achieving and interesting wines we are producing such as our lower calorie 9% alcohol range.”
To reach the Deloitte’s Fast50 2012 list, companies had to achieve at least 154% growth. The 2012 group of Deloitte Fast 50 businesses grew the New Zealand economy by $637 million over the past three years and created 1376 jobs.
