Glacier 51 Toothfish is officially a State Winner of the delicious. Australia Harvey Norman Produce Awards!
There were hundreds of entrants and just a few winners selected from each state, so it is humbling to receive this award from within such a respected field of entrants.
Glacier 51 Toothfish’s culinary qualities shine just as much as its sustainability credentials. Austral Fisheries are proud of its history as a fish sought after by world-class Chefs for many years and the future of the brand is bright.
Today’s release of the 2021 State Winners is the result of the delicious. Harvey Norman Produce Awards State Judges meeting to taste their way through the crop of predominantly primary produce, industry-nominated entries. The State Judges were tasked with awarding the best of their state in the Dairy, Earth, Paddock and Sea categories.
delicious. editorial director Kerrie McCallum said:
“Although the pandemic still presents challenges, this year’s State Judging was as exciting as ever. The produce that was tasted across all of the categories was outstanding. Australian producers continue to deliver world-leading produce.
“The delicious. Harvey Norman Produce Awards, now in its 16th year, celebrates and honours the best and most innovative producers and produce in Australia. The Awards aim to encourage, showcase and reward Australian producers, build awareness of culinary regions and recognise fresh, seasonal food that is produced sustainably with passion and integrity. Affected by severe drought, devastating bushfires, Covid-19 challenges and now the floods in New South Wales, it has never been more important to support our farmers and producers."
Glacier 51 Toothfish is now eligible for the National Awards and all eligible produce will be tasted by the National Judging panel in May to decide the 2021 Gold Medal and Trophy Winners.
Congratulations to every other winner around the country, and thank you to the WA State judges: Brendan Pratt, Jed Gerrard, Melissa Palinkas and Santiago Fernandez, for your dedication to supporting and promoting local produce.
