The Awards


Many innovative businesses create something new. Others stand out by subtracting, and in the process create something that is more effective.

The 2017 South Australian Food Industry Awards Program recognised and celebrated these individuals and businesses that are making significant breakthroughs in the food industry through their outstanding vision, leadership and innovation.

The Program provides the opportunity for these outstanding food professionals to raise the bar and inspire our dynamic industry to greater achievement. Each year, the  Program is further enhanced through the calibre of entrants, the quality of the judges, and the dedication of the people who work in the food industry.

2017 saluted the breakthroughs made by the best of South Australia’s food industry.
