Popular Dandenong deli Uncle’s Smallgoods has carved a meaty return at the 2019 Australian Food Awards.

The maker of woodsmoked meats in Thomas Street won medals for its Uncle’s Ham (silver), smoked chicken (bronze), streaky bacon (bronze) and pork frankfurts (bronze).

It was the first time that the family business entered the national competition.

Co-owner Brendan D’Amelio said the medal haul confirmed that the business’s hard work was paying off.

“We are thrilled to be recognised against the country’s best producers.”

The awards are conducted by The Royal Agricultural Society of Victoria.
