The passion and support of consumers is very important to South Australia’s food and beverage manufacturers and producers, and the Consumer Award, sponsored by Statewide Super, is one of the most hotly contested and popular awards in the South Australian Food Industry Awards Program. Past winners of this award include Robern Menz, Enzo’s at Home and Golden North.


Introducing the Consumer Award Legend

The South Australian Food Industry Awards Program is proud to announce that Robern Menz have been recognised as the South Australian Food Industry Awards Consumer Award Legend.

The Consumer Award Legend has been introduced to reward those businesses who have won the Consumer Award at least three times – a testament to the loyalty of consumers to these South Australian brands, and to the quality of their products. Statewide Super are the sponsors of this new award, conferred for the first time at the 2018 South Australian Food Industry Awards Gala Dinner.

This is the consumer love all our food and beverage businesses yearn for, and work so hard to achieve. Congratulations to Robern Menz on being the first South Australian food business to attain this very special status.

“Being inducted as the inaugural recipient of the Legend award means so much to us as it demonstrates not only what industry professionals are thinking about Robern Menz and the FruChocs brand, but also how we are perceived by the public,” Robern Menz CEO Phil Sims said.

“We’re enormously thankful for the loyalty we’ve received over the years, as a three time winner of the Consumer award and now elevation to Legend status.” 

“2018 has been a big year for us, with the acquisition of Violet Crumble, and we’re thrilled to look towards 2019 with this award win, which reflects the hard work and commitment of all the team.”
