New partnership with Restaurant & Catering Industry Association

Business Victor Harbor is excited to confirm it has established a new partnership with the Restaurant and Catering Industry Association.

Part of Business Victor Harbor’s Strategic Plan is to increase the profile of the brand by forming valuable partnerships with other Chambers to help provide even more resources to members and to increase awareness and its profile as the leading Fleurieu Chamber.

Under the agreement, hospitality businesses irrelevant of size, who are current Business Victor Harbor members will be entitled to join Restaurant and Catering Industry Association at a significantly reduced rate.

Chairman Business Victor Harbor Michael Schubert said “This exciting partnership will lead the way for other Chambers to get onboard as partners to help grow businesses within their relevant sectors.  Business Victor Harbor is currently working with other Industry Chambers to achieve that”.

Restaurant and Catering Industry Association CEO, Wes Lambert said “This partnership is a symbol of our commitment to work closely with business chambers to help support hospitality venues across South Australia. This is especially important after the past two years we have experienced with the COVID-19 pandemic.”

“Along with Business Victor Harbor, R&CA will continue to advocate for small business to help create a thriving and sustainable business community in Victor Harbor and we look forward to the amazing outcomes this partnership will provide.”
