NZ Food Producer Awards

The newly launched NZ Food Producer Awards aim to celebrate our country’s best products, from the land to the sea.

Categories include Dairy; Earth; Water; and Paddock, and both primary producers and value-added producers will be recognised. The most impressive producer will be named NZ Life & Leisure Outstanding NZ Food Producer of the Year, and will receive a feature story in the May 2017 issue of the magazine as well as $5,000 worth of marketing services from Kathie Bartley and Nicola McConnell of Marvellous Marketing. Category winners will also be profiled in NZ Life & Leisure and receive significant publicity.

Producers and growers of all sizes are encouraged to enter the awards, with judging to take place in March 2017. The judging panel comprises a number of NZ Food Writers members: the head judge is Lauraine Jacobs, with Enzo Bettio, Lucy Corry, Emily Dowding-Smith, Nick Honeyman, Sam Mannering, Trudi Nelson, Kathy Paterson and Anna Tait-Jamieson set to join her in assessing the products using the 1000 Minds judging software algorithm..
