Banana winners are grinners at Show

They say many hands make light work, but the Banana Exhibit judges at the Innisfail and District Show might disagree.

The range of banana hands, along with bunches, cartons and singles, were top quality – with multiple local growers taking home awards today (July 12).

Among the winners were Celledoni Farming, who received 1st place in five classes and the title of Most Successful Exhibit.

The Australian Banana Growers’ Council congratulates all the successful entrants, as well as the committee who gave up countless hours to organise the display.

Banana Exhibit Chief Steward Rob Zahra said he was pleased with the turnout, despite tough conditions.

“The two growers that did particularly well – Celledoni Farming and Reidy’s Bananas – they’re always great supporters of our exhibit and good luck to them both!”

Mr Zahra also noted the effort involved in getting the Banana Exhibit together each year.

“There’s a lot of work that goes on behind the scenes and just a few of us to do it.

“But there’s a good group of people involved and we enjoy each other’s company – that’s why we keep coming back each year.”
