Matamata Chronicle - - Front Page - TERESA HATTAN

Mata­mata-Pi­ako Dis­trict Coun­cil hosted the an­nual Busi­ness Night Out on Thurs­day, with Mata­mata’s COMAG win­ning the Bay­leys Busi­ness Ex­cel­lence Award. Another Mata­mata busi­ness, Jersey Girl Or­gan­ics, re­ceived the very first Emerg­ing Busi­ness Award.

The Mata­mata cus­tomer ser­vice awards went to Plumb.Co (trades and ser­vices) and Life Phar­macy (re­tail).

COMAG’s gen­eral man­ager Kevin Dare said to get nom­i­nated was ‘‘fan­tas­tic’’ but to win was ‘‘awe­some’’. He wanted to thank award spon­sor Bay­leys and MPDC for host­ing the event, along with the com­pany’s cus­tomers, their staff and their fam­i­lies.

Jersey Girl Or­gan­ics’ Mary Vosper said the fam­ily-run busi­ness were sur­prised but happy to be an­nounced as Emerg­ing Busi­ness Award re­cip­i­ents.

Mary wanted to thank her nephew Michael, her brother John Vosper and his wife Liz Mackay and their worker Pradeep for all their ef­forts with the busi­ness. ‘‘We also have very loyal cus­tomers who just love the milk.’’
