On Friday 12th April 2019, the IPC Asia Pacific 2019 Supplier Awards and Charity Ball took place – ‘A night under the stars’. It was held at the Heritage Wharf Doltone House in Sydney, Australia and supported the wonderful charity, ‘Act for Kids’. Countrywide Food Service Distributors was represented by Chai Alexiou, Karina Ernst, Priyantha Perera and Helen Clemente. Daily Fresh Food Service was represented by Manuel Meletis and Antonio Cerqueira and Plateau Food and Beverages was represented by Julie Smith and Shaun Coutman.
Act for Kids is an organisation that facilitates free professional therapy and support services to prevent and treat child abuse and neglect. A traditional style live-auction and raffle was held on the night to raise funds for the charity – a great initiative to support an important and worthy cause. Countrywide Food Service Distributors were very proud to have sponsored the top raffle prize for the night, a 5-night luxury break in the stunning Maldives. We envy the winner of that one!
The highlight of the night for Countrywide was the announcement of Global Food and Wine – Queensland, as the winner of the Supply Chain Partner Award 2019. What an amazing achievement associated with such a prominent QSR chain. A big Congratulations to the Global team for their outstanding service. We are proud to have you as one of our Members. We are positive you will continue with the same level of diligence into the future.
