The Awards provide a great opportunity to recognise businesses that have achieved excellence, spanning a range of categories highlighting success, innovation and quality service across the region.

The highly anticipated Business of the Year was awarded to The Hamilton Hamper as an outstanding business that demonstrated excellence across all areas of their business.

Southern Grampians Shire Council Mayor Cr Bruach Colliton said the Hamilton Hamper’s determination to provide customers with local artisan products and to support regional producers, highlighted their commitment to product, delivery and service.

“A huge congratulations to the Hamilton Hamper Team who are deserving winners for this prestigious award supporting approximately 50 local producers is something to really be proud of,” said Cr Colliton.

“It’s great to see once again such a high standard of entries, and what a testament it is to our community that so many local businesses have found opportunities start-up or to continue to grow.

“There are so many talented business owners and dedicated employees in our region and the Business Awards provides us with the chance to reflect and highlight their hard work and continued service and product delivery.
