Melbourne Food & Wine Festival’s Legends 2020 program is proudly presented by Hostplus 

Established in 1993, the Legends program recognises the contributions made by key figures across the spectrum of food and drink in Victoria. In 2020, Hostplus is proud to extend its association with Melbourne Food & Wine Festival across the Legends program for the first time.

Since 2012, Hostplus has presented the Trailblazer Award, given to a person 40 years of age or younger who has made an outstanding contribution to the advancement of the Victorian food and drink industry. The Hostplus Hospitality Scholarship has been offered since 2014 as an annual prize for a young professional to further their experience and learning overseas. The Scholarship is on hold in 2020 because of the COVID-19 pandemic.

The team at Hostplus extends congratulations to the 2020 Trailblazer winner and to all the 2020 Legends.
