Barossa Fine Foods’ tradition in smallgoods production goes back to great uncle Andreas Knoll who learnt to make smallgoods such as Vienna’s, knackwurst and salamis in a Munich factory at the age of 15 in 1924. His nephew Hans learnt the business from him in Munich before migrating to Australia in 1957, eventually opening his own shop where his son Franz started work also at the age of 15. In 1991 Franz and his wife Barbara bought a stall at the famous Adelaide Central Market called Barossa Fine Foods and started making small quantities of smallgoods on his parent’s farm in the Barossa Valley, never imagining it becoming Australia’s most awarded smallgoods producer, now boasting more than 700 medals won from national and state competitions. Barossa Fine Foods is now steered by Franz and Barbara’s 3 sons; Dieter, Andreas and Alex. At the Sydney Royal Taste of Excellence Barossa Fine Foods will be sampling their 2018 champion products, Smoked wagyu, Roast Porchetta and Kalbs Leberwurst.
In the humble beginning Fudge by Rich was established by Nicole Street as a small venture out in Healesville in the heart of the Yarra Valley. Since this time they have grown quite significantly providing top quality award winning fudge throughout the Yarra Valley itself and now its extensive surrounds. Nicole believes in making deliciously rich fudge with only the best quality raw ingredients, resulting in a beautifully smooth product, full of genuine flavour and natural colour. She wants people to know that what their tastebuds are experiencing is derived from the actual flavour source. Many of the flavours for this reason are seasonal. Fudge by Rich pride themselves on unique and diverse combinations of the freshest ingredients to cater for every palate. Fudge by Rich hand make in small batches to ensure the highest quality and colour is maintained. Once poured the fudge is left to set before each bar is individually wrapped and string tied. This method is all to ensure the highest quality, that their customers have grown to love and expect, is maintained right to the end. Fudge by RICH will be offering tastings and samples of all of their Sydney Royal Award winning Fudge and Walkers Lane Crunchy Nut Brittles.
