NEXT EVENT DATE:  - Cancelled for 2020

Cancellation UPDATE-

Given the decision to cancel the Royal Tasmanian Food Awards and the likely decision to run a scaled down Royal Hobart Wine Show later in the year it is unlikely that the Fine Wine and Dine dinner will be able to proceed this year. 


The current COVID 19 restrictions specifically prohibit such gatherings but if this changes we will reassess the decision and provide further advice.

The royal fine food awards-

Each year the Royal Agricultural Society (RAST) of Tasmania hosts the annual Royal Hobart Fine Food Awards. This event brings many judges from all over Australia (local and interstate), together to find our country’s best produce! 


Established in 1995, our Fine Food Awards is one of the most respected and longest running food awards in Australia. Although running for over 24 years, we aim to continue evolving to keep up with the ever changing trends of the Australian food industry, consumer tastes and needs by considering new classes and sections. 

We aim to promote and encourage excellence in the Australian food industry by providing a quality bench-marking system that enables fine food producers to assess the quality of their products against their contemporaries and competitors. We encourage feedback and it is not unusual to see manufacturers approaching these awards as a learning exercise, growing and adjusting each year in an effort to improve and ultimately achieve gold, champion and reserved champion of selected categories.
