Australian produce award winners announced
The 2008 Vogue Entertainment + Travel produce awards were announced earlier this week at Sydney’s Aria restaurant.
The awards, chosen by a leading group of chefs, food writers and broadcasters, are designed to find the best food suppliers in Australia according to Libby Travers, VE+T’s project manager. “Whether you’re a three-hat chef, or someone who enjoys cooking at home, these are the products you need to know about”, she was quoted as saying on the Vogue website. “The Produce Awards also aim to celebrate the people who help promote small producers,” she added.
The winners of the thirteen categories were spread amongst the states with South Australia the only state without a winner and Victoria, with five winners, the most prolific state. Victorian based producer of high quality squab and game birds, Glenloth Game, was the only company to be recognised with two awards. The winners are listed below:
