Guardian Express - - NEWS - Ju­lian Wright

Tur­ban Chop­sticks picked up eight awards in one week while it re­lo­cates to larger premises.

EIGHT awards in two states within one week has just spiced up the life of Tur­ban Chop­sticks di­rec­tor Mei Yong.

This month, the In­dian and Asian nat­u­ral food range im­pressed judges at the 2018 Aus­tralia Food Awards (AFA), man­aged by the Royal Agri­cul­tural So­ci­ety of Vic­to­ria (RASV).

Its Thai Green Curry paste won a sil­ver medal and the Thai Red Curry, But­ter Chicken and Satay Peanuts sauces re­ceived bronze.

Back home in Perth, it was awarded an­other four medals, one sil­ver (Thai Green Curry) and three bronze (But­ter Chicken, Satay Peanuts and Thai Red Curry), in the 2018 Pantry Goods Awards by the Royal Agri­cul­tural So­ci­ety of Perth.

Ms Yong said Tur­ban Chop­sticks was also in the process of ex­pand­ing and re­lo­cat­ing from its orig­i­nal Mt Hawthorn base to Bur­swood.

“I am stoked about the awards, es­pe­cially on a na­tional level,” she said.

“We’ve just launched our food ser­vice range, which goes to chefs, restau­rants and hos­pi­tal­ity places and now we are re­lo­cat­ing, and ex­pand­ing in Bur­swood be­cause we need a big­ger space to op­er­ate.”

The prod­ucts are stocked at IGA, Farmer Jacks and Wool­worths.
