Larisa’s past achievements are as impressive as her current ones. 24 years ago Larisa and her family migrated to Australia wishing to provide a better life and wider opportunities for her two sons. “The education and welfare of my children was the driving force that led us to settle in this country. Recognising that coming from a different cultural background was a strength, not a weakness; we have developed Expo-Trade into a successful business.

Business Achievements
Founder and Managing Director of Expo-Trade Pty Ltd 1999-2010

When Larisa immigrated to Australia in 1994 with her husband and two children, she never imagined that only five years later she would establish Expo-Trade Pty Ltd, a company specialising in exporting Australian meat products, lamb and sheep skins and wine to the world. Focusing initially on her links with homeland Russia, Larisa based her business in Port Adelaide, working hard to realise her vision. In its short history, Expo-Trade experienced rapid growth in turnover history and is the biggest supplier of Australian agricultural products to Eastern Europe. 

Six years after its inception, Expo-Trade achieved spectacular growth, with an annual turnover in 2005 of $12 million, supported by the efforts of five staff.   Expo-Trade has a full-time branch office in St Petersburg with three staff on the ground. The success of Expo-Trade is a tribute to Larisa’s motivation and energy as a Managing Director, her business acumen and personal creative entrepreneurial spirit.
