South Australian Food Awards finalists announced
The finalists for South Australian Premier’s Food and Beverage Industry Awards have been announced.
Finalists include both newcomers and well-known names in various product categories from daily staples such as eggs, nuts and dairy products to treats like ice cream and luxury products, such as abalone.
Food South Australia Chief Executive Catherine Sayer said that despite all the challenges 2020 has delivered, entries in this year’s awards were up by 15%.
“Our theme for the awards in 2020 is ‘Sharing our Stories’, and clearly our industry is keen to do just that,” Sayer said.
“2020 has seen heightened determination for South Australians to support South Australian food and beverage businesses. Everyone is very aware that even their smallest purchasing decisions have real effects on people’s jobs and livelihoods.”
Food South Australia will host the awards program, which also receives funding support through the state government.
South Australian Premier Steven Marshall said the state government is focused on achieving growth for the state, particularly through the food and beverage industry.
“We launched the Growth State Strategy earlier this year and, through our enduring industry–government partnership with Food South Australia, we are supporting industry-wide development of capability and capacity,” Marshall said.
“This unique partnership is integral to achieving growth and recognises the important contribution of the food and beverage industry to our state’s economy. Congratulations to all of the finalists in 2020.”
The winners will be announced on 13 November at the Awards Gala Dinner, which will proceed as restrictions lift on gatherings in South Australia.
