Food South Australia CEO Marni Cook said the annual awards aim to recognise excellence, leadership and innovation across the South Australian food and beverage industry.
Trade and Investment Minister Nick Champion last night announced finalists across 14 categories, including the top 20 South Australian food and beverage brands vying for the coveted Consumer Award, determined by public votes.
Cook said the calibre of entries in this year’s awards demonstrates the industry is thriving.
Winners will be announced at a gala dinner on Friday November 10, 2023.
“All entries received this year reflect the strong values and community spirit that characterise the South Australian food and beverage industry, and deciding on the finalists was a challenge for the judges,” she said.
Premier Peter Malinauskas said South Australia’s food and beverage industry had a strong global reputation and was a significant contributor to the state’s economy.
“I’m proud to be associated with this prestigious awards program, which acknowledges this sector’s invaluable contribution – especially after navigating through some particularly challenging years,” he said.
Cook said that on top of being in the running for an award, all entrants were invited to participate in the Retail Ready Program, sponsored by Foodland Supermarkets, which provides retail support and relationship building opportunities directly with Foodland.
