Entries Open for Pork, Bacon And Ham Awards

Entries Open for Pork, Bacon And Ham Awards

New Zealand’s greatest butchers and meat producers will once again compete to showcase their unique skills and innovative products this June, with entries now open for this year’s New Zealand Pork, Bacon and Ham Awards.

The competition – which draws hundreds of entries from butchers, producers and deli owners nationwide – will present awards for Innovative Pork, Convenient Pork, as well as a range of categories featuring prime New Zealand bacon and ham.

CEO David Moffett says NZ Pork founded the awards to provide retailers the opportunity to showcase their very best PigCareTM Accredited New Zealand pork products.

“The awards demonstrate the outstanding quality, flavour and taste that can be achieved by combining New Zealand born and raised pork with the skills and creativity of local butchers,” he says.

“It's also a great way for local retailers to promote their own commitment to excellence.”

Judged by a panel of over 30 chefs, food connoisseurs and master butchers, Mr. Moffett says the New Zealand Pork Bacon and Ham awards highlight the innovation, skill and experience of the country’s best butchers.

“Last year, some of the country’s best retailers took home our Supreme Awards for their creativity and unique use of flavours,” he says.

“So we’re looking forward to seeing what this year’s participants bring to the table.”

Entries for the awards close on Friday 1st June, with judging taking place in Auckland on Thursday 5th July. The winners will then be celebrated at a special Awards Dinner during NZ Pork’s Annual General Meeting on Thursday 2nd August.

Retailers can enter as many products in as many categories as they like, however products cannot be entered into the same category multiple times. Entry is restricted to PigCareTM Accredited New Zealand pork, bacon and ham, sold at a retail outlet.
