Last chance to enter SA’s Food and Beverage Industry Awards

The annual South Australian Premier’s Food and Beverage Industry Awards program, hosted by Food South Australia, has been instrumental in celebrating excellence in South Australia’s food and beverage manufacturing industry for over 25 years. This year’s program encourages participation across the entire food value chain, recognising all contributors to the South Australian food and beverage industry.

The introduction of new award categories and the refinement of entry questions, reflect topics of greatest importance and concern faced by businesses today including Mental Health & Wellbeing as well as ESG (environment, social and governance).

Food South Australia Chair Ray Borda highlights the value of aligning this prestigious awards program to changing industry conditions and priorities. “We are committed to creating practical and actionable opportunities for industry-wide growth and development, while also celebrating excellence, quality and innovation,” he said.

The 18 award categories for 2024 feature new additions which include the Business Improvement Award, sponsored by Visy, the Industrial Foodservice Award, sponsored by Mitani Group, and the Agritourism Award, sponsored by the South Australian Tourism Commission. Also, the addition of the EatDrink Local SA Award, sponsored by MBL, will celebrate the foodservice businesses that support and serve local food and beverages on their menus. The Foodland Supermarkets Consumer Choice Award, renamed in line with its popularity, will once again be decided by public vote.

Supported by the Government of South Australia through the Department of State Development, South Australian Premier, Peter Malinauskas, emphasises the significance of these awards as a benchmark for excellence and best practice in the state’s food and beverage industry. “I strongly encourage businesses and individuals from all regions to participate in this year’s program and make the most of the incredible benefits that entering the awards provides,” he said.

Entries are open until Monday, 15 July for Open Individual Awards and Open Business Awards, with winners announced at the Awards Gala Dinner at the Adelaide Convention Centre on Friday, 22 November.
