What is the Best Bites program?
Mornington Peninsula Shire's food awards program – Best Bites - assesses local food businesses on measures they are taking to provide safe and healthy food; use environmentally sustainable business practices; and provide safe and accessible food premises.
Businesses that meet the requirements will be featured in the Best Bites Food Guide and are eligible for the Best Bites Food Awards.
The program was developed by a steering committee of food businesses, consumers and traders groups and included representatives from Peninsula Health, All Abilities Consultative Committee, Western Port Biosphere Reserve, Monash University, SecondBite, Heart Foundation, Mornington Peninsula Produce and Sustainability Victoria.
Recognition is through the Best Bites Food Guide, the Best Bites Food Awards, and the Best Bites People's Choice Awards.
