Competition opens for the best in the food business The New Zealand Food Awards is asking all local food and beverage producers: do you think you are the best in the business? Entries for the 2016 New Zealand Food Awards opened on May 2. The awards, in association with Massey University, recognise the success and innovation of those within the food and beverage industry, giving them an opportunity to gain recognition for their excellence. Manufacturers large and small, primary food producers, food service providers and ingredient supply companies are all encouraged to enter. Massey University Vice-Chancellor Steve Maharey sees the awards as a time for both competition and celebration. “The awards celebrate the best in New Zealand for food and beverage production manufacturing, nutrition, enterprise and food safety. It is an opportunity for companies to generate recognition for their brands in an industry that makes up New Zealand’s largest export earner.” Entrants present their products to an expert judging panel for review, allowing
them to gauge their work against their peers. Categories have been updated this year, with Chilled, Dry Goods, Beverages and Frozen for large manufacturers, and Artisan and Gourmet for small producers, along with a plethora of other awards.
