Margaret River bakers cracks into Tasmanian Fine Food Awards
Hard work and dedication paid off for a Margaret River bakery last month when it was handed a cracking amount of accolades at the Tasmania Fine Food Awards.
Local artisan baker Margaret River Cracker Company raked in the champion trophy for Best Baked Product at the competition alongside a swag of other gold medals for their wine cracker entries.
It comes just five years after husband-and-wife bakers Bryce Bettenay and Nicola Wilkins opened the business, with the intention to source all ingredients from the Margaret River Region.
Ms Wilkins said she was excited to have the business recognised by such a prestigious award.
“We try to source as many of our ingredients locally as possible and have formed great relationships with our local producers over the past years.”
She said working with producers in the region had been the best part of the journey.
The awards follow a 2018 win at the Royal Perth Fine Food Awards which named the company champion for its Gluten-Free Caramelised Onion and Thyme Crackers.
Amongst their weekly sales at the Margaret River Farmers Market, the husband-wife due also supply their crackers to about 28 South West wineries, delis, and stores, as well as more than 50 Perth outlets.
