RAS 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 2015 President’s Medal have now been selected and the final judging process has begun.  View the 2015 finalists here.


The winner will be announced at the Awards Dinner on Thursday 16 July 2015. Further details and tickets will be made available in the near future.

For more information, or to register your interest in attending please contact the Project Manager of the President’s Medal, Melanie Knott on 02 9704 1350 or presidentsmedal@rasnsw.com.au.
