Seafood the Big Winner at SA Food Awards

11 November 2009 - Australian Food News

Black lipped abalone and farmed Southern Bluefin Tuna from ‘Australia’s Seafood Frontier’, the Eyre Peninsula were the major winners at the recent Premier’s Food Awards in South Australia.

Dover Fisheries and Clean Seas Limited were dual winners scooping two awards each, highlighting that seafood from South Australian waters is world class.

“Abalone business Dover Fisheries, which won both the NAB Agribusiness Export Award as well as the new Food Adelaide Value Chain Award, are driving dollars into this State through well researched consumer and market understanding,” Premier Mike Rann said. “Differentiating their products specifically to these needs has allowed them to compete in highly competitive markets and come out on top with consumers.”

The Premier announced ten winners in total including the latest South Australian Hall of Fame inductee Michael Angelakis, of seafood empire Angelakis Brothers, at the 12th Annual South Australian Premier’s Food Awards presentation gala dinner.

Walk into the office of Michael Angelakis and the framed certificates and commendations are everywhere.

That's after negotiating along Field Street outside, where the constant coming and going of chiller trucks of every shape and size and trolleys laden with seafood scoot around the Angelakis precinct. This is a busy seafood industry.

And the centre of it is Michael - Managing Director of Angelakis Brothers, chair of the Seafood Industry Development Steering Committee, Director of the Seafood Council and the industry representative on the Premier’s Food Council.
