The expert jury awarded the MONETA Entrepreneur of the Year 2021 of the Moravian-Silesian Region award to veterinarian and farmer Michaela Hlubková. The winner among companies and the title of IBM Company of the Year 2021 of the Moravian-Silesian Region went to CRÉER, a company engaged in the production of furniture and accessories made of high-value concrete.
The business of the winning entrepreneur Michaela Hlubková began after graduating from the Faculty of Veterinary Medicine in 2013. The original veterinary activity was joined by a dairy sheep and goat farm, which is now the largest producer of goat milk in the Czech Republic. The farm has been followed by its own dairy, where it produces sheep and goat milk products. "After three years of running the dairy, we have our products in almost all retail chains in the Czech Republic and we are also the market leader in this commodity," says Michaela Hlubková. It has managed to manage the production of premium quality milk and to transform this milk into excellent products whose taste breaks traditional myths about the unpleasant aroma of goat products. At the same time, it has successfully broken through on the international scene in the export of dried goat colostrum, where it ranks among the largest producers worldwide. The second core business is veterinary medicine. Together with her husband, she runs the Equine Clinic in Petřvald near Nový Jičín.
The winner in the company of the year category was CRÉER, which produces original furniture made of an unusual material, concrete. "Our permanent offer includes unique concrete furniture for the home and garden, elegant bathroom fittings, kitchen worktops and even the smallest interior accessories," says Marek Bilko, CEO of the winning company CRÉER. In today's unified world of mass production, the company is a manifesto of diversity, individuality and proof that the things we surround ourselves with can have their own unmistakable story. It is a reflection of the desire for originality and utilitarian quality. Every success story is the launch of a product that uses the properties of concrete like no other, contributes to its category, and is therefore completely unique. These include the concrete turntable, concrete speakers or concrete LED panels. The lifespan is calculated to be at least tens, if not hundreds of years. Customers include mainly architects, bathroom studios and designers. The second place among the companies went to elieva, which operates the Peace Theatre. The bronze podium belongs to Rybízák, a producer of fruit wines.
