Autumn Flavours Wow Judges at the Fine Food Awards

2014 RMFFA Pasta JudgingAn outstanding 15 champion trophies and 223 medals were awarded at this years Autumn Royal Melbourne Fine Food Awards (RMFFA).

Conducted by the Royal Agricultural Society of Victoria (RASV), the seasonal RMFFA presents a unique and valuable opportunity for producers to benchmark, promote and market produce and products under a recognised seal of quality and excellence. Trophies were awarded across the country with producers from New South Wales and Victoria presented five Champion Trophies; Tasmania and Western Australia both securing two; and one in South Australia.

Three new categories – Australian Distilled Spirits and Liqueurs, Fresh Produce featuring Garlic, and Pasta – were included in this years Autumn RMFFA program and competition for trophies was fierce with an impressive 436 entries.

RASV CEO Mark O’Sullivan said the addition of new categories to the Autumn RMFFA reflecting consumer trends had proved a popular decision with producers.

“The calibre of entries from Australian producers continues to improve and with the introduction of new categories, this year has been no exception.

“We acknowledge the contribution made by this year’s judges and congratulate all Royal Melbourne Fine Food Awards entrants and winners,” said Mr O’Sullivan.

The RMFFA is Australia’s premier food awards, growing in reach and prominence each year and attracting exhibitors from across the nation. The Awards promote and celebrate excellence across the fine food industry, recognising boutique producers, regional specialists and commercial food manufacturers.

Victorian winners of the 2014 RMFFA Autumn and Spring Programs have the unique opportunity to showcase their products at the 2014 Royal Melbourne Show in the Taste of Victoria Pavilion or as part of the popular Royal Melbourne Fine Food Deli Bags.
