Sydney Royal Fine Food Shows are held annually. 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.
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.
The Sydney Royal Smallgoods & Charcuterie Competition was established in 1995 to judge a variety of deli products. There are 9 classes within the competition, ranging from ham, bacon, jerky, fermented/non-fermented and dried/cured products, to general smallgoods, cooked products, liverwurst and terrines and sausages. The competition receives over 700 entries yearly, including more than 200 different sausages. Butchers and discerning smallgoods manufactures choose to enter their products into the Sydney Royal due to the history and reputation of the competition. The competition is held in August/September every year as part of the Sydney Royal Fine Food Show.
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.
