Champions on Farro shelves! Outstanding Food Producer Award Medal Winners

Outstanding NZ Food Producer Awards 2020

Farro was delighted to sponsor the Earth Category of the Outstanding NZ Food Producer Awards again this year and, for the icing on the cake, we are so excited to say that we have every one of the Champions winning foods available on the shelves in-store.
A team of specialist judges assess around 200 products, awarding Gold, Silver or Bronze medals, with one taking the Supreme Champion award. Each of the producers were assessed on flavour, aroma, texture, appearance and innovation, with the rest of the marks coming from brand story, packaging and sustainable business practice.

So, food lovers, we have a slew of delicious, locally-produced foods for you to choose from when you are next at Farro. Check out some of the amazing award-winning products below, and be sure to support a local business by adding them to your basket next time you’re in store.
