The Australian Meat Industry Council (AMIC) is the Peak Council that represents retailers, processors, exporters and smallgoods manufacturers in the post-farm-gate meat industry.

The NSW/ACT State Competitions


The Finals took place on a sunny Saturday in late October at Osborne Park on Wollongong's beautiful harbour. Sausage Kings from the 19 areas in the State Regional Competition sent their prized sausages to be judged by seasoned judges from within the industry and AMIC's sponsors. Entries for the Best Butcher's Burger Competition were also grilled to perfection to find the state's best.

The Awards Dinner was held that same evening at the Chifley Hotel in Wollongong where winners were announced, including those of the Smallgoods Competition, which was held earlier in the month. The AMIC/Neild & Co NSW/ACT Apprentice of the Year winner was also awarded.
