About Us

One of the largest programs of its kind, The Melbourne Royal® Australian Food Awards inspire and celebrate excellence in food production. The Awards provide an essential benchmarking opportunity for commercial food producers of all sizes, from boutique small volume to large-scale commercial production. The Awards have a long and rich history, beginning with the foundation of the Royal Agricultural Society of Victoria in the 1870s. Evolving considerably since, they now include categories for Dairy, Smallgoods, and Sweet and Savoury Preserves.
