Huon Aquaculture nominated for presidential honour

Salmon producer Huon Aquaculture has been nominated for the Royal Agricultural Society (RAS) of NSW President’s Medal.

This follows the company’s recent Champion Salmon Product win for their Banquet Slice Cold Smoked Salmon at the 2010 Sydney Royal Fine Food Show.

Huon Aquaculture is one of six champion medal winners from the Sydney Royal Fine Food Show selected to compete for the President’s Medal.

The President’s Medal is the only award of its kind in Australia where champion products and producers from the wine, dairy and fine food industries are assessed on financial, social and environmental performance, market acceptance and point of sale appeal, as well as the passion and commitment of the producer.

Frances Bender, co-founder of Huon Aquaculture, said the Huon Aquaculture team are flattered to be considered.

“We are the only Tasmanian company to be nominated alongside some incredible producers from around Australia: Bulla Dairy Foods (VIC), Holy Goat Cheese (VIC), The Yalumba Wine Company (SA), Peter Lehmann Wines (SA) and T & R Pastoral (SA), and we are certainly very flattered to be considered a contender for this award,” she said.
