Costa Mushroom category joins the Mernda railway community open day serving delicious and nutritious vegetarian mushroom burgers.  Families and residents of all ages showed up to test the new trains in preparation for the official opening on Sunday 26th August.  Despite the harsh weather, the rain and winds didn’t keep the people away!   

Celebrating the first rail line in 60 years with the project delivered ahead of schedule, this much needed rail system is designed to help ease travel time and access for commuters in the local community.

Supporting this event was local MP member Danielle Green who addressed the locals quoting “I look forward to welcoming visitors travelling by train to our wonderful region from next month. This long-awaited investment will be welcomed by Mernda locals.

Our hearty veggie burgers were a hit with the residents – serving up to 1000 veggie burgers that day, we were delighted to see our mushrooms so popular amongst the crowds.

The event allowed Costa mushroom an opportunity to engage with local residents – promoting our fresh, clean and flavourful mushrooms, many were intrigued as to where they could purchase our products – the answer is at your local retail stores!

Mushrooms are not only easy to cook and prepare, they also come as a great subsidiary for vegetarians who crave that juicy and meaty texture in food.

We hope by showcasing our mushrooms, customers would understand the simplicity and versatility of having mushrooms added to their meal.

The Costa Berry Category’s commitment to providing ongoing training and development for its staff has been recognised at the annual Sunny’s Business Awards, run by the Coffs Harbour Chamber of Commerce.

The Costa Berry Category was the recipient of the award for Professional Development and Staff Training, which recognises businesses that provide ongoing training to their staff – both in house or through external training organisations.

David Jordan, General Manager of the Berry Category, said the award was recognition of the emphasis Costa placed on providing a learning and development framework across the whole business.

“People are at the heart of the Costa business and we are committed to providing opportunities for our team members to develop long-term careers,” Mr Jordan said.

“We also acknowledge the important role we play as a major regional employer to contribute to the long-term development and sustainability of our communities.”

Led by a small but dedicated Human Resources team, a raft of new training programs have been designed, developed and delivered. In addition to the training programs, Costa has also implemented a traineeship program, working with local high schools and VET providers to offer new job opportunities across the regions in which it operates.
