Elements Eatery awarded 2023 ‘Business of the Year’ and ‘Hospitality’ Award at the Business Excellence Awards

Elements Eatery are proud to announce we are recipients of Mornington Peninsula Shire’s ‘Business of the Year’ award and ‘Hospitality’ award. The awards are part of the Business Excellence Awards recognising innovation, sustainability, and excellence across all industry sectors.

The awards showcase the excellent work that local Mornington Peninsula Businesses do. Eatery were among 38 businesses shortlisted as finalists in September and on November 15 announced as Business of the Year and Hospitality winner!

Mornington Peninsula Shire says “The top prize of Business of the Year goes to one business who has demonstrated excellence in every aspect of their business, from planning to developing new products and their unquestionable commitment to sustainability.”

Elements Eatery - Business of the Year

“To be awarded Business of the Year is great recognition of our team’s dedication to creating a welcoming and positive experience at Elements Eatery” said Tracey Fleming, owner of Elements Eatery.

“We couldn’t do it without our wonderful customers and team. With the calibre of local tourism and hospitality businesses we have on the Peninsula to receive this award is great recognition of their hard work”.

Elements Eatery is a destination café located in Rosebud within the Yawa Aquatic Centre.  They proudly showcase local Mornington Peninsula produce and create a place for locals and visitors alike to connect.

Elements Eatery opened two weeks before a lockdown. To say that the last two years has been challenging (as it has for everyone in hospitality) is a huge understatement. This award, on top of the Nutrition Australia Award earlier this year is great recognition of the work put in by our team along with our startup project partners Belgravia Leisure and the Mornington Peninsula Shire.

Elements Eatery provides high quality food and service in a unique setting delivered through a lens of inclusion, sustainability and community at Yawa Aquatic and Recreation Centre in Rosebud on the Mornington Peninsula.  They are also a member of Plastic Free Mornington Peninsula.

The 2023 Mornington Peninsula Business Excellence Awards are a Mornington Peninsula Shire initiative, supported by Solo Resource Recovery, MP News Group, Mornington Peninsula Magazine, 3MP, Chisholm Institute and Mornington Peninsula Regional Tourism Board.
