The Savour Australia Hostplus Awards for Excellence is a nationally recognised, independently judged awards program that recognises exceptional service and culinary talent across Australia. The Awards have been designed to recognise and promote industry best practice.

The Awards for Excellence gives restaurants and caterers well deserved recognition for their hard work, acts as a promotional tool, and can help attract incremental patronage to your business. The Awards are held in each state, recognising operators in metropolitan and regional centres. A number of industry gala dinners are held around Australia to announce the winners and celebrate the outstanding achievements of restaurants and caterers in this vibrant and hardworking industry.


  • R&CA has developed a comprehensive communications plan that ensures your business will receive media recognition and attention during the Awards period;
  • As an Awards participant, R&CA provides promotional and marketing assistance including exclusive use of our Awards Finalist and Winners logo;
  • You will receive a judging report that statistically benchmarks your establishment against your peers;
  • Taking your staff to the Awards gala dinner is a great way to reward them for their hard work and say thank you for contributing to your business; and
  • The nomination fee, or cost to enter, covers judging costs ONLY – meaning that every dollar you spend entering the awards will eventually go back into your business when the judges comes to dine and evaluate your establishment.
