Royal Melbourne Fine Food Awards

The Royal Melbourne Fine Food Awards (RMFFA), is Australia’s premium fine food event.

The RMFFA promotes excellence across the fine food industry, celebrating boutique producers and regional specialists.

Conducted biannually by the Royal Agricultural Society of Victoria (RASV), the RMFFA presents a valuable opportunity for all producers, large and small, to benchmark their products and establish their credentials in the Australian fine food industry.

The Autumn program takes place in February while the Spring program takes place in June- August.

The RMFFA provides consumers with a seal of excellence to mark quality and exhibitors with the opportunity to link with consumers through consumer engagement activities such as the Taste of Victoria Pavilion and the Royal Melbourne Fine Food Deli at the Royal Melbourne Show.
