Foodservice 30 under 30

Celebrating the next generation of industry professionals

foodservice’s 30 Under 30 Award, supported by Nestlé Professional, returned in 2019 to flesh out and foster emerging talent in Australia’s hospitality industry.

For five months foodservice magazine combed the country for chefs, restaurateurs, managers, bartenders and sommeliers, aged 30 or under, who are kicking goals in their fields. Entries came from all corners of the industry at all levels of dining, and they were bowled over by the incredible dedication and drive of so many young professionals.

Applicants were judged on their achievements, goals, creativity and camaraderie, as well as what they’ve learnt throughout their careers. From over 150 contenders, 30 winners were selected.

The incoming generation of foodservice guns is already changing the game and exciting their peers and customers.
