President's Medal

2014 President's Medal


The President’s Medal is the Royal Agricultural Society of NSW’s most prestigious award. Since it was established in 2006, the President’s Medal has recognised outstanding achievement in Australia’s food, wine and dairy industries. The award is the only one of its kind in Australia where producers are judged not only on their product quality but on their financial, social and environmental performance.


The finalists for the 2014 President’s Medal have now been selected by the Wine, Dairy and Fine Food Committees and site tours will be taking place shortly.


The winner will be announced at the Awards Dinner on Thursday 21 August 2014. Further details and tickets will be made available in the near future.


For more information, please contact the Project Manager of the President’s Medal, Suzie Lew on 02 9704 1350 or
