Bensville resident, Ms Amanda Delalat, of Organics2you Daleys Point, has been selected as a finalist for the 2017 AusMumpreneur Awards in the Sustainability Award.
For the past five years Ms Delalat has run an organic home delivery service, but only recently, she opened the boutique organic wholefoods retail store, which has seen her make the finals.
“With the help of other amazing mums and other likeminded business women, I am creating a space where we can have educational seminars and workshops, and have provided a space to support and host local charity events,” Ms Delalat said.
Ms Delalat attributed her success to her late father.
“After losing his battle with the cancer, it threw me onto a path of searching for answers and learning about food and how we can heal our bodies with it,” Ms Delalat said.
“In turn, my love for good food and the lack of organics on the Central Coast, inspired me and then Organics2you was born.
“The rest is, as they say, history,” she added.
Ms Delalat said making the finals was a dream come true.
“My greatest achievement this year was opening our boutique store, all the while dealing with my 13-year-old son going through some major health challenges.
“This has certainly been a test to my commitment, my ability to move through adversities and ask for help when I needed it,” Ms Delalat said.
The AusMumpreneur Awards presented by The AusMumpreneur Network celebrate and recognise Australian Mums in business achieving outstanding success in areas such as business excellence, product development, customer service and digital innovation.
