Yumbah Aquaculture wins gold at Sydney Royal with its greenlip abalone

Yumbah Aquaculture received multiple awards at this year's Sydney Royal Show.

The company won Champion Other Farmed Aquaculture Product for its Yumbah Frozen Greenlip Abalone whole in shell.

It also received a Gold Medal for its Frozen Greenlip Abalone whole in shell.

The company produces greenlip abalone at its Kangaroo Island facility at Smith Bay, and also at its facilities in Port Lincoln and Portland, Victoria.

It also won a Silver Medal for its Frozen Tiger Abalone whole in shell, not grown on KI.

KI councillors Shirley Pledge, Rosalie Chirgwin and Graham Walkom toured Yumbah KI recently and spoke about their visit at October's council meeting.

Clr Chirgwin said the abalone farm was very impressive and something all Islanders should be proud of.

She alleged at the meeting that the proposed Kangaroo Island Plantation Timbers port at Smith Bay was holding back the company.
