Boutique aquaculture farm Yarra Valley Caviar has won three gold medals for its salmon and trout at the 2012 Sydney Royal Fine Food Show.
The farm received gold for its Rainbow Trout, Arctic Char (which will be available on the market mid-next year) and its Atlantic Salmon.
General Manager Mark Fox says after having much success with its Atlantic Salmon caviar, it’s humbling to be rewarded for its salmon and trout – particularly given it only launched its Rainbow Trout on the market a matter of weeks ago.
“To take out gold for all three of our fresh fish products, particularly when the trout is such a new product for us is great validation of the work we put into ensuring our fish are farmed as naturally as possible and under the best conditions we can provide.”
National Business Development Manager Nick Gorman says they were confident the trout would set a benchmark in Australia, and to be recognised for that is very rewarding.
“We want to provide the best products on the market and this sort of credibility is invaluable for us in proving just that. We’re committed to following strict organic guidelines and will continue to do that for all of our products and it’s great to see the quality of the products is reflected through that.”
The award wins will be officially recognised at a function as part of the Crave Sydney International Food Festival in Sydney on 25th October.
