ACHIEVEMENT: Rob and Krista Watkins from Natural Evolution in Walkamin have had to make more space on their mantle after winning the Prime Super Agricultural Innovation Award at the recent Queensland Community Achievement Awards.

ROB and Krista Watkins have added yet another award to their growing collection after receiving the Prime Super Agricultural Innovation award at the recent Queensland Community Achievement Awards. 

The winners of the Awards were announced via a virtual presentation ceremony held on Friday, November 27. 

Out of the seven categories available Walkamin based business Natural Evolution won the Prime Super Agricultural Innovation Award which focuses on a business’s innovation to enhance production and maximise returns especially to the primary producers. 

Rob and Krista have been sourcing excess produce from farms locally and further using produce that is branded unsuitable for supermarkets and making it into new products. 

Krista was humbled to receive the award and for both her company and staff to be recognised for their hard work. 

“It’s such great recognition for us and our whole team right through to the farmers that we purchase produce from,” she said. 

“The team here at Natural Evolution in Walkamin and our extended team who work on sales right around the world. 

“Rob and I are over the moon it’s a great thing for everyone who is involved in the whole Natural Evolution process and products.” 

The winners of each category received $2,000 in award prizes from Qoin and Awards Australia along with a trophy.
