Huon Aquaculture products win food awards


Australia's Huon Aquaculture has won the Champion Seafood Trophy at the 2021 Royal Tasmanian Fine Food Awards, with five products awarded gold and another four more products gaining a silver award.


With a score of 99/100, Huon's Reserve Signature Cold Smoked Salmon Loin received the trophy with judges describing it as an "excelled product, balanced, well-rounded".


The co-founder of Huon Aquaculture, Frances Bender, said that the company's team was thrilled to be recognised for its quality products amidst a world-class field.


"We submitted nine products for judging, and every product gained either a Gold or Silver award,"Bender said, adding that Huon's products were assessed among 44 seafood entries. "We are extremely proud that our locally produced products are considered of such high grade by so many local, national and international judges."


The awards come as a testament to Huon's commitment to using stress-free, sustainable methods of production that see their salmon raised to mirror the natural life of salmon in the wild.


Bender said that Huon applies the same farming dedication across its entire product range.
