New Zealand Food Awards

New Zealand Food Safety supports the New Zealand Food Awards. We sponsor 2 categories of the awards – the Food Safety Culture Award and the Primary Sector Products Award. Entries for 2018 closed on 30 June and winners were announced on 17 October.

About the awards

The Ministry for Primary Industries (MPI) has been a major sponsor of the New Zealand Food Awards since 2008 and has sponsored different award categories over that time. The awards are owned and organised by Massey University.

Primary Sector Products Award

This award is open to all primary sector food and beverage products where producers, researchers, and manufacturers have added value through the introduction of:

  • new varieties, cultivars, or breeds
  • new or alternative harvesting, processing or packaging to extract or create new or innovative primary sector products.

Food Safety Culture Award

This award was introduced in 2016. This sponsorship promotes New Zealand Food Safety as a food safety regulator with a commitment in the establishment, maintenance and innovation of business cultures that focus on customer safety up and down the food supply chain.
