Have your say on Food Safety Rules + New Food Safety Resources available
The Food Act 2014 came into effect on 1 March 2016 and applies to all food for sale in New Zealand.
MPI is consulting on proposed changes to food safety regulations and notices. Regulations and notices set rules that food businesses have to follow under the new Act.
Existing regulations and notices were consulted on last year and set out what businesses need to do to comply with the law.
An update on the Last ClubTAB Weekly Prize Draw
As you are all aware Saturday 22nd October was scheduled to be the last ClubTAB Weekly Prize Draw for awhile, unfortunately the TAB encountered technical issues which meant the draw could not be conducted and communicated to ClubTAB sites. Which means that this week (Saturday 29th October) we are having the last draw for a while! There will be a massive $30,000 up for grabs so make sure you let your members know so they can get in to win.

Below is a brief overview of the entitlements for these holidays, if you require further information please contact Clubs New Zealand on 0800 4 CLUBS or visit the Ministry of Business, Innovation and Employment website at www.employment.govt.nz
Congratulations Papanui Club
Last week we were eager to find out the results of the 2016 Hospitality New Zealand Awards for Excellence with Papanui Club up for The Best New/Redeveloped Bar/Restaurant. This week we are so pleased to be able to say they won!!!
This is as far as we know the first time a club has ever won a Hospitality New Zealand Award for Excellence (let alone be a finalist). This award is proof that determination and taking some big risks can have big rewards.
