Some of Australia’s most renowned chefs and food industry leaders joined the delicious. team and finalists at the annual awards ceremony last night.

Seventeen awards, 16 trophies, and 30 gold medals were presented, with each of the State winners across four major categories (From the Dairy, From the Earth, From the Paddock and From the Sea) decided by the National Judging Panel, and considered for the overall Producer of the Year Award presented by Harvey Norman, which was last night awarded to Bruce Collis for his Seasonal Wild Caught Fish (VIC).

Ms McCallum said: “The delicious. Harvey Norman Produce Awards not only influence what you may see on restaurant menus for the next year to come, but most importantly give credit to the people who care for the produce that lands on our plates. It has never been more important to get behind our farmers and small producers. They need our help.”
