This week at the nation’s biggest food event, Fine Food Australia, the nation’s best new products in the country were named. An annual event, the Best New Product Awards recognises the most outstanding products to have launched in the food industry in the last twelve months.

The 2017 entrants raised the bar and shone a spotlight on the level of innovation and quality products being produced from not only around the country, but the world. Chosen by a panel of industry experts from across major foodservice and industry mastheads, winners range from ground breaking technology to healthy food for kids.  

Host of the awards, Event Director Minnie Constan, commented, “2017 has been a huge year for our industry and the number of new products we’ve seen entered reflects that. We’ve also seen key trends such as the ongoing sugar-free and healthy alternatives movements reflected, and of course an ongoing focus on innovation and technology. What was common across all categories was a clear focus on creating products that meet consumer demands, regardless of whether the customer is from within or outside of the industry. The Best New Product Awards have again demonstrated that this is breaking ground and creating some incredibly innovative products. These awards are as much about celebrating this great industry as much as it is about recognition of particularly great new products.”
