Pizza maker wins Business of the Year at Hume Business Awards

Campbellfield based pizza manufacturer and exporter, Della Rosa Fresh Foods has been named Hume’s 2016 Business of the Year. Della Rosa Fresh Foods took out the top honour at the Hume Business Awards on Thursday 8 December 2016 at the Parkroyal Melbourne Airport.

The ceremony’s other major prize, the Hume Business Leader Award, was presented to four well respected entrepreneurs from Sunbury; Victor Scerri, Carmel Scerri, Bianca Scerri and Amanda Skipper.

Respectively, they operate Vics Food & Wine, The Spotted Owl and the recently established Little Goat Coffee Co. A total of 17 Hume businesses received awards, in categories that included manufacturing, innovation, retail, small business and customer service.

Hume Mayor, Councillor Drew Jessop said Della Rosa is a deserving recipient of the major award.

“They are well known throughout Australia, being a major supplier to the leading Australian supermarkets, restaurants and airlines.

“Emilio De Lorso, Managing Director of Della Rosa, has built a family company that is passionate about pizza, and continues to cultivate new flavours and textures.

“In just six years, Emilio has advanced a product that consumers can now buy in Woolworths, Coles and IGA while company growth has also seen them increasing export to mainland China, Vietnam and Japan.

“The company is a very welcome resident of Freeman Street in Campbellfield and Emilio should be so proud of the way he has provided jobs to many, many people.”

Cr Jessop said the Hume Business Awards celebrated businesses that produce a quality product or service, demonstrated excellent customer service and those that excelled in sustainable practices and resource recovery.

“The business leaders in Hume who put everything on the line to innovate, look at ways of being more sustainable and take risks, are the drivers of prosperity in our community,” Cr Jessop said.

“Hume is fortunate to be home to a range of different industries, such as transport, manufacturing, tourism, and retail.”

Hume City Council supports businesses with a range of activities, including business breakfasts, training workshops, and the recruitment of local workers. See a full list of the Hume Business Awards 2016 finalists and winners below.
