The Gala Dinner is the culmination of the Awards program and the largest gathering on the South Australian food and beverage industry calendar.
The Gala Dinner is all about announcing and celebrating our award winners and industry achievements for the year. There’s the important business of recognising the businesses and individuals who lead our industry, and there’s the fun of a rare opportunity to come together, where many businesses reward their staff with time out to celebrate their achievements as a team and an industry.
At a record breaking Gala Dinner on 22 November, the winners for 2019 were announced during an evening of futuristic performances and a delicious menu featuring products from a range of our 2019 finalists. Find out who our 2019 winners were here and view the Gala Dinner album here.
Foodie fan Amanda Blair was back with us once again to MC the proceedings, and once again our generous wine sponsors included premium producers Gatt Wines and Coriole Vineyards. Over 740 industry professionals enjoyed “the best party in town!”
Our host for 2018 was dedicated South Australian foodie Amanda Blair, returning to one of her (and our) favourite events of the year. The Adelaide Convention Centre chefs created a special menu of South Australian produce, and we once again enjoyed premium wines generously provided by Gatt Wines and Coriole Vineyards. Australia’s leading vocal powerhouse and Adelaide Fringe 2018 sensations, Gospo Collective, entertained us.
“Congratulations for putting on such an incredible event … it was a real credit to you all! Our table had such a great night and we look forward to doing it again next year.”
Sales Executive, NCI
“We look forward to the Food Awards every year. It’s a fantastic opportunity to celebrate our enviable food industry in SA and the people who make it.”
Erik de Roos,
“Beerenberg entered the Food Awards because we wanted to benchmark our company against the best companies in South Australia, some of which are world class. It’s also a great opportunity to bring our staff to the dinner and celebrate together.”
“As a previous winner it has been a great benefit to share the success with our staff, to use it in our media and our marketing and just to be proud of what we have achieved and who we are.”
Managing Director, Beerenberg Farm
