The Borthwick Food Group’s cocktail Angus burger kit won the Australian Made Award at the food industry’s largest trade event, Fine Food Australia, last night.
The cocktail burger kit is made in Victoria using Australian, all-natural ingredients with no preservatives and additives, with 100% pure Angus beef, a brioche bun and tomato relish.
Australian Made Campaign Chief Executive, Ian Harrison, welcomed Borthwick Food Group onboard the campaign and congratulated the team on their win.
The prize includes a free licence to use the Australian Made logo, paid in full for one year.
The green-and-gold kangaroo logo is Australia’s only registered country-of-origin trade mark for the full range of genuine Aussie products and produce.
“The Fine Food Awards showcase some of the best Australia has to offer, and this year was no exception – Borthwick Food Group’s cocktail Angus burger kits exemplify Australia at its finest,” Mr Harrison said.
“The Australian Made Campaign is proud to support Aussie growers and manufacturers through the Australian Made Award.”
“We are very excited to have won the Australian Made Award for best new product. We are so proud to bring to the market a quality product that is locally made using no preservatives and additives,” Borthwick Food Group Managing Director, Angus Borthwick said.
“Borthwick Food Group has always stood for quality in every way.”
Runners up for the award were Eurostore, for Neha’s Indian Inspired ice cream range, and Daylesford and Hepburn Springs Co for its organic tonic water.
