The driving force behind major food festivals in South Australia including Cheese Fest and Ferment the Festival, Kris has been at the forefront of cheese innovation with her range of seasonal cheeses and incorporating native ingredients.
Barbara Knoll credits her business success to family, teamwork and passion. Purchasing Barossa Fine Foods, a smallgoods shop at the Adelaide Central Market with husband Franz in 1991, they have together grown the business into the success story it is today with 8 retail outlets, national distribution network, a smallgoods factory and too many industry awards to count. Barbara has faced many challenges including raising four sons (and now 9 grandchildren) in a demanding industry but remains passionate about local produce and the continuation of the Barossa legacy.
