The Sydney Royal Fine Food Competitions reward excellence in Australian produce. These competitions are held seasonally in summer and spring. In summer, competitions include coffee, aquaculture and professional bakery while spring is the season for regional food, branded beef, branded lamb, deli meat, pasta and olive oil.


Sydney Royal Fine Food competitions as with all Sydney Royal Shows are noted for their independence and high standards. All products entered into these food shows must be Australian and are judged blind.

Specialist judging panels comprise diverse experts, for example, winemakers, technical experts, chefs, industry specific media, marketers and educators. 


The level of excellence is not compromised year to year at Sydney Royal food shows. That’s because awards are not bestowed on the best products on the day; rather products are awarded based on a pre-determined standard.
