BRONWYN and Burke Brandon from Prom Country Cheese Moyarra took out the Food and Wine Production Award at the Federation Business Awards held in Traralgon on Friday, August 25.
Businesses from across Gippsland were well represented and had their time in the business sun in front of almost 400 people at the Gala Awards dinner.
“Everyone deserved to win,” said Bronwyn. “It was tough competition and we didn’t expect to win.”
One of the judges said, “Prom Country Cheese is a great business with a clear vision and business development plan. Outstanding.”
Other comments included “The owners have found a balance between size of farm, ongoing growth and maintaining quality of product. They have identified new opportunities without impacting negatively on their core business.
Significant technological and energy efficiency enhancements have increased productivity. A unique manufacturer of cheeses from a sustainable farm, focused on the delivery of a quality product.”
“It shows we’re heading in the right direction,” Bronwyn said.
The award comes at a perfect time for them as they are opening again this coming weekend from 10am-5pm Saturday and Sunday.
Bronwyn encourages people to book if they’re coming for lunch. She said she would hate for people to travel all that way and not be able to get a table.
