Morrisons Winery in Moama has placed second in a national catering award.TRENT HORNEMAN November 20, 2012 4:34am
Moama’s Morrisons Winery manager Simon Reid believes a recent second place in a national catering award has put the region on the map.
Morrisons was runner-up in the Restaurant and Catering Australia excellence awards, an award open to any restaurant which catered for events.
Morrisons initially won the southern NSW caterer of the year and then the rural NSW caterer of the year, earning the business the chance to win the national title.
Mr Reid said while the recognition was huge for his business, it was a shot in the arm for the region.
‘‘Most of the people who come to the region stay for more than one night. This is not just for Morrisons, but it is recognition for Moama,’’ he said.
‘‘When we won the state level, I asked people in the room to put their hand up if they knew where Moama was. Pretty much our table were the only ones with hands up.
‘‘I feel this award has put our region on the map. People will look at Morrisons and Moama and think that would be a great place to visit.’’
As part of the competition, judges inspected Morrisons while staff hosted a function. Judges review Morrisons on a range of areas, from the cleanliness of its toilets, through to staff management, food and customer satisfaction.
‘‘The judges watched everything we did. They even checked out the coolroom to see if it was clean. There was nowhere to hide,’’ he said.
