History of Australian Organic

Blank Banner Awards

A feminine hygiene manufacturer, a chocolatier, a fruiterer and wine maker were amongst the winners of the inaugural Australian Organic Annual Awards.

CEO of Australian Organic Paul Stadhams says it’s great to be able to acknowledge people and businesses that have contributed so much to the growth of the organic industry.

“The Hall of Fame is an award I’m particularly proud to introduce because there are so many people who have laboured for such a long time to create the profitable, robust and growing industry that organics is today.

“Rosemary and Gavin Dunn have volunteered so much of their time to develop the industry, as well as juggle a very successful milling business in South Australia.

“It’s thanks to early pioneers like the Dunns for developing market access niches and options and giving consumers a choice about what sort of food they eat. Congratulations to all the award winners!”

The 2014 Australian Organic Annual Awards for Excellence took place at the National Wine Centre, Adelaide, South Australia on 14th November.
