Alf and Nadia Taylor, founders of food processing and packaging solutions provider tna, have been honoured as Members of the Order of Australia.
The Taylors were presented with their medals by the Governor of NSW, Her Excellency the Honourable Margaret Beazley, in recognition of their service to the community through their philanthropic initiatives including the Nadia and Alf Taylor Foundation.
Speaking at the ceremony, Nadia Taylor expressed her gratitude both to the Governor and the team at tna for their support.
“This recognition is an endorsement of tna’s mission and values that aims to embrace inclusive growth. We are both humbled and deeply honoured to be recognized for our endeavours to lend support to the lesser fortunate, especially children and socially excluded groups, through tna’s humanitarian programs.
“Alf and I may be at the forefront of this, but it is the unstinting support of every team member that allows us to share tna’s success with the disadvantaged,” she said.
The Taylors founded the Nadia and Alf Taylor Foundation in 2002. Since then, it has supported over 150 charities in 39 countries, focusing on interventions in areas such as education; social enterprise; healthcare; human rights; emergency relief; and animal rights.
