Sydney Royal Fine Food Shows are held annually in spring and summer. They set benchmarks for a huge variety of products, from artisan bread to zesty preserves.
Sydney Royal represents the competitive events held each year and the system used to set benchmarks for agricultural excellence. The Sydney Royal competitions held during the Sydney Royal Easter Show attract entries from exhibitors each year from across Australia who enter their product, animal or skill in an attempt to win a prestigious Sydney Royal Ribbon. The Sydney Royal Wine, Dairy, Fine Food, and Beer & Cider Shows are held throughout the year and reward excellence in Australian produce.
The Sydney Royal Smallgoods & Charcuterie Competition was established in 1995 to judge a variety of smallgoods products. There are 54 classes within the competition, ranging from ham, bacon, salami and prosciutto to general smallgoods, cooked products, poultry products, gourmet products and sausage classes.
The best chocolatiers and pastry chefs across the country will be locked in battle over two days of intense competition and display of creativity, artistry and skills. While honouring the best of tradition, the Show continually evolves to reflect industry trends and advances. Every Exhibit is assessed blind and entrants are given written feedback from the esteemed panel of Judges following the Show enabling even the smallest artisan Australian producers to benchmark themselves against the broader industry and improve their product over time.
Established in 1995, the competition is held in February/March every year as part of the Summer Fine Food Show. The Competition regularly receives over 400 entries. There are 87 classes, which range from bread (white, wholemeal, grain, artisan and international bread), to cakes (friands, cupcakes, muffins, tortes/gateaux and more), to pastries, biscuits, plain pies and gourmet pies.
Since 2006, the Royal Agricultural Society of NSW presents the ultimate award in agricultural excellence, The President’s Medal. It is unique in that the Medal is not awarded solely on taste; the Medal recognises a product’s overall financial, social and environmental integrity through the entire production cycle from gate to plate. It draws from Sydney Royal Champions from throughout the year, examines, and celebrates truly inspirational, innovative agricultural food and beverage achievers.
