‘NZ Food Heroes’ celebrated – from a distance

Food – where to get it, what to cook – has been a huge preoccupation for many in lockdown.

With this new appreciation for the variety and quality of local food in a time of crisis, the New Zealand Food Awards, powered by Massey University, want to celebrate the people who make it all happen.

Due to the huge impact of the COVID-19 pandemic, the awards this year have shifted from their usual programme, which would have opened for entries on May 1, to instead generating a community-focussed celebration of innovators across all sectors of the food and beverage industry who have kept our hunger at bay and our taste buds buzzing.
