November 1 2017
The Sodexo Haileybury City catering team outperformed regional finalists from each state, taking the top honour of Gold at last night’s gala dinner held at Peninsula at Central Pier in Docklands.
The Savour Australia Hostplus Awards for Excellence is a nationally recognised, independently judged awards program that recognises exceptional service and culinary talent across Australia. The judging criterion encompasses many facets of the catering experience including operations, service, function setting, and of course food quality and presentation.
Sodexo was recognised for the talent of its functions and catering team at the esteemed new Haileybury City campus in West Melbourne. Sodexo has provided catering services across all Haileybury campuses including school canteens, cafes, and functions for the past 15 years.
Belinda Bean, Sodexo Business Manager at Haileybury College, was thrilled to accept the award on behalf of the team. “My team and I are elated to win the National Institutional/ industrial Caterer award for 2017. I am so proud of what we have been able to achieve at Haileybury during our contract tenure and this award further demonstrates our capabilities in a very competitive market. I look forward to what the future brings as we continue to grow the business and deliver exceptional service to our clients.”
Nick O’Callaghan, Country President and Director Corporate and Education said: “This award is great validation for our talented chefs and dedicated operational teams who provide a consistently high standard of service for our customers and clients on a daily basis. I am so proud of Belinda Bean, Justin Dooley and the entire Haileybury team for their strong Sodexo Service Spirit and thank the Haileybury school community for their continuing support.”
R&CA CEO Juliana Payne said, “Sodexo should be proud of their achievements. Running a catering business isn’t easy – there’s a lot of blood, sweat and tears that goes into to making it work. But when you get the right mix of staff, produce and service, the results can be extraordinary.”
Congratulations to the team and everyone involved who are acknowledged for their extraordinary talent, teamwork and service spirit!
