Awards celebrate local suppliers
Putting Queenslanders First Award winners
The Buy Queensland approach
Since the launch of the Buy Queensland approach in 2017, the Queensland Government has changed the way it buys. When we spend government money, we are prioritising local benefits.
This includes supporting Queensland jobs, backing local business and ensuring better economic, social and environmental outcomes.
Since the launch of Buy Queensland in 2017, the Queensland Government has invested more than $45 billion in goods and services with over 64,000 Queensland-located companies across all types of procurement.
The Buy Queensland Supplier Awards provided an opportunity to celebrate the success of Buy Queensland, by recognising the individuals and organisations that are contributing to a strong Queensland economy.
On 10 November 2021, the winners of 2021 Buy Queensland Supplier Awards were announced at a ceremony in Brisbane. A total of 8 different businesses were recognised across the following categories:
