VANCOUVER, BC--(Marketwired - November 01, 2016) - SYSPRO, a provider of award-winning, best-of-breed Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) software solution for on-premise and cloud-based utilization, today announced that one of its customers, Daiya Foods, has earned a finalist nomination in the Consumer Products Category for the 2016 British Columbia Export Awards. SYSPRO Canada is proud to be a premier sponsor of this year's awards.

The BC Export Awards are the province's most prestigious awards paying tribute to the success, achievements and innovative approaches of BC's top exporting companies. Conceived in 1982, the program was initiated by the Ministry of Economic Development to raise the awareness and recognize the contribution that the manufacturing and service sectors were making to the economy of British Columbia. Since that time, the number and categories of the awards have changed and varied in order to reflect the changes that have taken place in the economy of the province. Business in Vancouver currently organizes the annual event.

"The success of this program which has recognized over 300 companies since its inception, has reflected the growth and diversity of BC's economy over the past 30 years. With substantial markets now in every region of the world, BC's exporting companies have become truly international in their scope as well as their vision," according to Sue Belisle, President & Publisher, Business in Vancouver Media Group.

"It is a great honor to be selected as a finalist for the 2016 British Columbia Export Awards," said Greg Blake, Co-Founder, Daiya Foods. "As a leading purveyor of plant-based foods, we strive to be innovative in our approach to providing our customers with tasty foods that are better for you, and we're pleased to be recognized for our success in meeting this demand in the marketplace."

"We are very proud of Daiya's team for their success in persevering with their innovation, and leading the way with their plant-based food solutions," according to James Moffatt, President of SYSPRO Canada.

BC's exporting companies have become truly international in their scope, as well as, their vision. We take pride in our customers' aspirations to achieve performance excellence, and dedicate our talented team of experts to help our customers achieve that success."
