IGA’s ham trots in to take national award

Independent Grocers of Australia (IGA)’s Bone in Leg Ham has been awarded the Australian Pork’s “Nationally Available Ham Award Pork Mark” for the second time.

Australian Pork’s annual Australian Ham Awards celebrates Australian grown and produced hams and aims to educate consumers on how to identify ‘true-blue’ Australian ham. 

The competition forms part of the organisation’s Ham Week, which this year runs from 29 November until 5 December 2015.

Steven Cain, Metcash Food and Grocery CEO said: “Metcash and IGA independent retailers are delighted that IGA’s home-grown Australian ham has been recognised again as the best nationally available ham in the country.

“IGA are big supporters of Australian producers and it is an honour to be recognised as one of the best in the country for a ham from Australian pork. We are very proud to be the biggest independent supermarket group bringing this product to Australian homes this Christmas, with over 1200 stores nationally stocking the range.”
