We're thrilled to be announced as the Winner of the Federation Business School - Gippsland Business Awards in the Retail category for 2018.
The awards celebrate the innovative spirit, capacity and ability of Gippsland businesses, something we're incredibly passionate about here at Norte.
Awards Chair, Graeme Sennett, told the 400 people at the gala event the quality of entries this year was outstanding, creating a good problem for judges and demonstrating the quality and depth of business in the region. "The quality of entries, the finalists and the eventual winners show that our regional business sector is not only healthy but innovative and successful" Mr Sennett said.
"We had an extremely strong field this year, with our entries up on previous years so each of the category winners really earned their spot" Mr Sennett said.
The judging panel had to following to say about Norte, in selecting the winner of the 2018 Retail Award.
"Very focused business with a clear mission and direction. The business is environmentally focused with an outstanding business model, where clearly the values of sustainability are driving the bottom line and contributing to the profitability and community contribution of the business."
This award rounds out an incredible month for Norte, also recognised at the recent Bass Coast Business Awards for Environment and Sustainability, Business Excellence and Marketing and Promotion.
