The Gala Awards Event

Our Gala Awards Event is a dinner that is the culmination of the South Australian Premier's Food and Beverage Industry Awards, and has become the largest gathering on the state's food and beverage industry calendar.


A night to relish and remember

The Gala Dinner is an elegant mix of business - the announcement of the award winners, and pleasure - a rare occasion for our industry to come together to recognise the businesses and individuals who lead and inspire us. 

The menu, created especially by the team at the Adelaide Convention Centre, always showcases South Australian produce and includes a taste of the hard work of some of our finalists for the year.

Many businesses choose this wonderful event as a way of rewarding their team for their dedication and achievements and, even with the advent of a pandemic, we were lucky enough to be able to achieve a record attendance for the 2020 Gala Dinner on 13 November and present a fabulous COVID-safe celebration.

Look back and enjoy with us:

  • 2020 - another record-breaking event for the 750 attendees - and a time to celebrate resilience and passion in what everybody called "an extraordinary year". View the album here.
