Since 2007 the authoritative foodie magazine and website, Eat Out
, has recognised independent South African food producers at a ceremony that is now sponsored by DStv Food Network. Eligible produce must be grown or developed locally. Markets, outlets and blogs are also recognised for their hand in publicising and promoting these products. Whether it be a delicious new jam, organic yoghurt, rib-eye beef or organic herbs, the winners are a celebration of the best South African food producers have to offer.
