Westpac Auckland Business Awards 2017 – Central


My Food Bag has won the Supreme Business Excellence Award at last night’s Westpac Auckland Business Awards 2017 – Central.

The food delivery business’s founder, Cecilia Robinson, says consistency comes with the pursuit of excellence every single week.

“We aim to get better every week and we never rest on our laurels. So as a team we are always challenging ourselves, we always think about how we can do more and get better. That’s just part of our DNA in who we are.”

My Food Bag also won the Excellence in Customer Service Delivery category making it eligible for the supreme award.

Other individual category winners included business IT services and solutions company, Ricoh New Zealand Ltd, personalised edu-tech company Crimson Education, milk products exporter to China, Milk New Zealand Ltd, pre-prepared home-food delivery business WOOP, online education provider, The Career Academy and the Museum Of Transport and Technology (MOTAT).

Auckland Chamber of Commerce CEO Michael Barnett says the winners represent the diversity of Auckland’s economy in size, management style and commitment to business excellence.

“These awards are all about celebrating businesses in our community that are making a difference. These are the employers, producers and leaders for today and tomorrow – who make Auckland the thriving centre it is.”

Auckland Council’s economic growth agency – Auckland Tourism, Events and Economic Development (ATEED) – partners with Auckland Chamber of Commerce to present the awards.

ATEED’s Chief Executive Nick Hill congratulates those businesses recognised for standing out in their chosen fields.

“These companies are playing a key role in stimulating Auckland’s culture of innovation and entrepreneurship, which is driving long-term economic growth. Tonight’s winners have achieved excellence across a diverse range of sectors, and are role models for other businesses on their growth journey,” says Hill.

Jeff Driscoll, Westpac Regional Commercial Manager, Auckland, says the Westpac Business Excellence Awards are about taking time out to recognise the smartest, savviest and strongest businesses in the Auckland community.

“It’s been fantastic to see the high calibre of entries this year. Auckland is the biggest cog in New Zealand’s economy and fundamentally important to our global success.”
