Local producer Nee’s High Apple Pies is celebrating after winning 2 GOLD and 1 BRONZE
medal at the 2016 Australian Food Awards (AFA) for their Gluten Free Salted Caramel with
Macadamia Baked Cheesecake, Traditional Baked Cheesecake and Gluten Free Apple Pie.
This is the second time the family-owned business has entered the prestigious competition,
with this year its most successful yet. Having previously achieved a Bronze medal placement
in 2015 for their Traditional Lemon Cheesecake, Nee’s High Apple Pies has gone from
strength to strength winning Gold Medals this year.
“I am thrilled to be a gold medallist, as it really confirms that all the hard work is paying off
and my products really are of a high standard,” said Anita Gottwalt, business owner.
The AFA, conducted by The Royal Agricultural Society of Victoria (RASV) builds on the
success of RASV’s Royal Melbourne Fine Food Awards (RMFFA) and is Australia’s leading
National premium food awards program.
The awards offer entrants the opportunity to benchmark against set criteria; receive
invaluable independent feedback from industry experts; and be rewarded for excellence.
