Over 200 guests gathered at the Boonah Cultural Centre for the announcement of the 2021 Scenic Rim Business Excellence Awards Ceremony over the weekend, which saw the Scenic Rim’s best and brightest business stars recognised, including The Lime Caviar Company crowned business of the year with the Regional Prosperity Award.

“Having battled fires, floods and a global pandemic, the biggest takeaway from this years’ awards is the incredible resilience, determination and innovation of our local business community,” Scenic Rim Mayor Greg Christensen says, adding the night’s celebrations were long overdue.

 

“Once COVID-19 was on our shores, local businesses had no choice but to reposition themselves, whether it be moving to online shopping, hospitality changing to take-away only, or performing a complete overhaul on their operating systems to help keep their staff, customers and the community safe.

 

“The Scenic Rim Business Excellence Awards highlight those who go above and beyond in customer service and innovation, recognises their achievements and shows us all what’s possible.

 

“Our judges certainly had their work cut out for them assessing 65 nominations received from 49 businesses across 11 nomination categories, and commented on the high calibre of submissions.

 

“Besides being an opportunity to showcase our industry-leading businesses, the awards also send a strong message to potential investors and jobseekers that the Scenic Rim is full of opportunity.

The 2021 Business Excellence Awards were presented in the categories of: Tourism and Accommodation; Hospitality – Food and Dining; Retail; Trades and Construction; Transport, Logistics, Manufacturing and Mining; Professional and Community Services; Agriculture; Outstanding New Business, Business with 20+ Staff; and Trainee/Apprentice of the Year.
