It’s all about local for Raeward Fresh in Richmond, and their dedication to using local suppliers has seen them recognised at this year’s Nelson Hospitality awards.
The local grocery store is about keeping it local and championing the region by supplying the best locally-sourced fruit and vegetables from around the Tasman region.
The business was nominated for the ‘Best local supplier award’ in the 2019 Hospitality Awards.
Gareth Caldwell, owner of the business, says that the team was rapt when they found out that they had been nominated.
“We’re really happy to be nominated. Our team of staff work really hard.”
Gareth said that the nomination was a good way to recognise the importance of keeping it local.
“For us, we are all about local – we do as much as we can to support locals – our whole business is based around supporting as many local products and produce as we can.”
“It’s about putting as much back into the community as possible.”
