The 2017 Food and Beverage Award winners have been announced with meat producer Harvey Beef taking home the Best of the Best Award.

Harvey Beef also won the Meat, Poultry and Smallgoods category.

Daniel Briggs, Operations Manager for Retail at Harvey Beef, said winning the awards for its Finest Quality Beef Range was overwhelming.

“This is a new factory for us,” Briggs said.

“We have been around since 1919 and, in the last 12 months, we finally started our retail packaging division.

“We wanted to get our product out on a retail format, both in domestic and export. The opportunity was looking at a product that would extend shelf life and, with Sealed Air, we knew that was the best option for us.

“For the team back home, they are going to be so proud of this award.”

Food & Beverage Industry News hosts the Food and Beverage Awards annually. The 2017 awards were held at Doltone House in Sydney.
