AQUNA WINS GOLD
Aquna wins gold at the 2021 delicious. Harvey Norman Produce Awards. Aquna Sustainable Murray Cod has been announced as a national Gold Medallist in the From the Sea category at the 2021 delicious. Harvey Norman Produce Awards. As a 2021 State Winner, our team submitted our sustainably-farmed Murray cod for judging by a national panel — and are thrilled to have come away with the highly sought-after top honour.
Ross Anderson, Aquna chairman, is proud of the gold-medal win, which places the Riverina fish product among the best in the country. He said:
“Being named as a Gold Medallist, in Australia’s pinnacle food awards, highlights the dedication and quality of work in our production teams. I’d like to extend my congratulations to all of the producers who’ve been recognised this year.”
Gold Medallists were revealed in four categories: Dairy, Earth, Paddock and Sea, following tasting by a national judging panel, which includes: Alla Wolf-Tasker, Andrew McConnell, Peter Gilmore, Matt Moran, Josh Niland, Matt Stone, Jo Barrett, Lennox Hastie and Danielle Alvarez.
National judge Josh Niland said:
“I feel so proud to be part of these awards as they’re so important. It’s vital we shine a light on the great producers that work tirelessly across the board. This year was my first as a National Judge and it was great fun to share the experience with friends and colleagues. I’m so excited about the produce in this country.”
The gold-medal win marks a new era for Aquna Sustainable Murray and coincides with another exciting development for the brand. Easy-to-cook fillets of Aquna Sustainable Murray Cod are now available in the take-home seafood section of selected Woolworths stores in New South Wales, giving more consumers access to Australia’s iconic freshwater fish.
