Dalumi is the proud recipient of IsraelвЂ™s Outstanding Exporter 2008 award - an honor accorded annually by Israel's Ministry of Industry, Trade and Labor. The coveted prize was presented by President Shimon Peres at a special ceremony held at the PresidentвЂ™s Residence on 7th December 2009. Mr. Meir Dalumi and Mr. Kobi Itzchaki accepted the award on behalf of the entire company.
President Peres praised DalumiвЂ™s impressive contribution to the diamond industry. "By maintaining manufacturing facilities in Israel, Dalumi contributes to IsraelвЂ™s economy while simultaneously enhancing the reputation of the countryвЂ™s diamond industry worldwide.вЂќ Peres noted that "Dalumi has proved its strength and ability to deal with the worldвЂ™s economic crisis".
While this is the second time Dalumi has won the Outstanding Exporter Award, the world economic crisis and its impact on the diamond industry makes winning it this time even more meaningful.
