ROYAL TASMANIAN FINE FOOD AWARDS 

THE ROYAL TASMANIAN FINE FOOD AWARDS

Each year the Royal Agricultural Society of Tasmania (RAST) hosts the annual Royal Tasmanian 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 29 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.

In its 29th Year, the Royal Tasmanian Fine Food Awards committee has finalised its plans for this year’s Awards season. 

 

This year the awards will be run across multiple judging sessions. This allows for more seasonality of entries, closer attention to individual categories, and a more streamlined judging process to ensure all products judged receive the ultimate attention to detail.
