The 2014 South Australian Food Awards were held last Friday night and what a night they were.
Kytons was a finalist in two categories – Business Development Award (won by Moo Premium Foods) and the Brand South Australia Consumer Award (taken out by Enzo’s at Home).
While we didn’t pick up any awards this year (last year we won best new product for the Kytons Menz FruChocs Hot Cross Buns), Darren and I had a fabulous evening.
Apart from the awards themselves and seeing all of our wonderful foodie friends being rewarded for their wonderful products and businesses, the highlight for us was seeing our Kytons mini-lamingtons being brought out by all the waiters to be served as petit fours with coffee.
For the first time the awards held at the beautiful new Adelaide Oval and had a sporty theme and the delicous dinner used produce from as many SA producers as possible including Haighs, Gelista, Tuckers Natural and of course Kytons.
HG Nelson was the host and what a hoot he was – watch out if you were too slow getting from your seat to the stage!
A very excited Maggie Beer was inducted into the SA Food Hall of Fame and over 16 other awards were presented during the evening.
Congratulations to all the worthy winners including Golden North Icecream, Macro Meats, Woodside Cheese Wrights, Almondco, Rainbow Fresh & B-d Farm Paris Creek.
We live in a state spoilt for choice when it comes to quality food and the night was testament to this – a celebration of all things South Australian and food.
