Delicious editorial director Kerrie McCallum said: “Since 2005, the Delicious Harvey Norman Produce Awards has been at the forefront of championing the unsung heroes behind our top chefs and restaurateurs – Australia’s finest producers – and educating our readers on why it’s so important to know your producer.

“Affected by severe drought, devastating bushfires, Covid-19 challenges and the floods in New South Wales and Queensland, it is so important to support our farmers and producers.

“This year, we want to discover those leading the field in food production, cultivation and wild-catch practices and for the top-quality produce it results in. We are acknowledging producers with a focus on environmental sustainability, provenance, species diversity, preservation and collaboration with the local community.

“We are delighted to have Harvey Norman return as our presenting partner for the fourth consecutive year, their continued support and commitment helps this important initiative thrive.

“After hosting our Awards ceremony virtually for the past two years, we are really excited to join chef Matt Moran at Chiswick Woollahra for a stunning dinner to celebrate this year’s winners. delicious. readers will also have the chance to join us for the celebrations.”
