Daintree Saltwater Barramundi scooped up multiple awards at the 2023 Sydney Royal Fine Food Show, for their sustainably farmed fish.
Presented by the Royal Agricultural Society of NSW at Sydney Olympic Park, the awards are the pinnacle of recognition amongst Australian producers, examining and celebrating truly inspirational, innovative agricultural food and beverage achievers.
At the award ceremony, Daintree Saltwater Barramundi achieved the gold medal for their plate sized barramundi and a silver medal for their whole fish.
The stakes were higher than ever in this years’ aquaculture competition, with barramundi competing alongside rainbow trout, Murray cod, John Dory, mulloway, ocean trout and salmon.
Daintree Saltwater Barramundi Farm’s General Manager, Mark Hober, is thrilled to have received recognition for his barramundi against such a broad field – “We appreciate the opportunity to display our barramundi at the Fine Food Show as we use this to benchmark against industry. Results from the esteemed panel of judges help our team understand our product better and where we can improve and innovate. It is great recognition for the dedication of our passionate staff.”
For over 200 years, the mission of the Royal Agricultural Society (RAS) has been to shape the future of Australian agriculture and to continuously improve Australian produce to award-quality levels.
