NZ Food Awards
The ultimate celebration of innovation and excellence in New Zealand food and beverage.
For more than 30 years the New Zealand Food Awards has given food and beverage producers of our small nation the opportunity to showcase just how big they can be.
With ongoing themes of innovation and creativity, and strong ties to Massey University, the Food Awards quality mark remains the peak of excellence in New Zealand’s food and beverage industry. The annual programme aims to showcase our artisanal producers and large-scale food and beverage manufacturers.
Since inception by Massey University and New Zealand Institute of Food Science and Technology Inc. in 1987, the awards have celebrated New Zealand’s finest food innovations.
Each season includes an application period, a thorough judging phase and a finalist announcement, which culminates in a spectacular winner’s announcement gala dinner on October 23 2019.
