Toronto, New South Wales
“I’ve always had ‘launch a curry’ at the top of my bucket list,” quipped James Standish, “after tonight, I can finally strike it off!” James was part of a large group gathered at Toronto Adventist church on May 31 for the official launch of Jomnin, the organisation behind the distribution of Vissot Cambodian curry in Australia. Also on hand was Dean Powrie, who spoke about the achievements of the Vissot curry venture, and John Menzies of Sanitarium, who provided the invaluable technical assistance necessary to bring Vissot to Australia.
More than $A10,000 was generated in sales and investments tonight. Jomnin now has more than twenty volunteers to help distribute the first crate of Vissot curry, which is fantastic. This is half-way toward our target.
And what better way to launch a curry, than to lunch on it. A full spread of curries and assorted accessories were provided guests at the launch. For a price. The curry launch was, after all, about raising money for an Adventist clinic to be built in Cambodia. And, between the cake cutting, curry eating, speech making and chatty chatting, half a crate load of cool cash was raised.
“We are very grateful for the wonderful turnout and support,” says Ross McKenzie, the medical student who helped found the Cambodian company that makes Vissot curry. “More than $10,000 was generated in sales and investments tonight.”
Jomnin leaders celebrate the launch of Vissot curry on May 31.
Michelle Down, who organised the launch, said Jomnin now has more than 20 volunteers to help distribute the first crate of Vissot curry. “It’s fantastic,” says Michelle. “This is half-way toward our target.”
