The Vision

RARA Chevron

In conjunction with our Event Sponsors Loaded Reports, Nova Energy, OneMusic and RA Lexis ComplyHub, we proud to present the Restaurant Association Resilience Awards - the RARA's.

During 2020 we were overwhelmed by some of the stories we heard - of people and businesses around the country with amazing community spirit; those who have innovated and changed; and those who have found silver linings in the most challenging of times.

The Restaurant Association Resilience Awards recognised those people and businesses that have gone above and beyond to keep their people employed, help their communities and keep their businesses alive all whilst playing their part in stamping out the virus.

Using the Restaurant Association existing regional awards platform, the Association invited nominations from the industry for Outstanding Community Spirit, Outstanding Innovation and Outstanding Local Hospo Hero in Auckland, Waikato, Rotorua, Taranaki, Hawke’s Bay, Manawatu, Wellington, Christchurch and Queenstown.
