Frewville Foodland IGA in South Australia has been named the 2016 IGA Australia International Retailer of the Year at the supermarket chain’s international awards in Las Vegas.
The 2016 IGA International Retailers of the Year were part of the IGA 90th Anniversary Diamond Celebration.
The awards are bestowed upon the IGA retailers from around the world who, based on IGA’s globally applied standards, have achieved exemplary excellence in retailing and advancement of the IGA Brand.
Frewville IGA is Australia’s first certified organic supermarket, with one of the largest ranges of fresh produce in the state. The 3,100 square-meter store also includes prepared foods, a meat servery, bakery, cheesebar and readily available fresh seafood, a health-and-wellness section, and a Kitchen and Coffee bar.
The supermarket is owned by Nick & Spero Chapley.
“We’re delighted that our Frewville Foodland IGA store has been recognised on the international stage,” Nick Chapley said.
“As an independent retailer, customer service is at the heart of our success along with continual in-store innovation and having one of the largest ranges of fresh produce in South Australia. We are known in our community for our unique product range, including brands our customers love—a wide range of local and organic produce, cultural and gourmet ingredients as well as a bakery, cheesebar and readily available fresh seafood.”
Apart from the Australian award, retailers from the US, China, and the Carribean received awards on the night.
