Chris Bonello wins best Ōra King Dish


Chris Bonello has won the prestigious Best Ōra King Dish Australia 2017 in Tokyo with his dish Ōra King Salmon, Noodles and Rocks.

Bonello from MPD Steak Kitchen in Victoria attributes the inspiration for his dish to the Japanese way of treating food.

“Let the produce shine and garnish accordingly. Ōra King salmon speaks for itself, and in my eyes, you do not need to do anything over the top to it”


Ōra King Best Dish Australia is run by Ora King Salmon, a New Zealand Salmon farm focused on sustainable methods and practices and efficient protein production.

"Our focus is on the sustainable production of salmon that addresses the growing demand for marine protein without compromising the health of the planet, our salmon or consumers"


Chris Bonello is a long time supporter of eWater Systems and other sustainable initiatives and products, and we would like to congratulate him in his well deserved win.

Slashing safety testing regulations

A Turnbull government move to slash industrial chemical regulation could create "toxic chemical disasters" and leave the public and officials oblivious to the risks, critics have warned.

Cancer Council Australia, unions and public health advocates have expressed alarm over the proposed changes, which mean more than 99 per cent of new industrial chemicals will not be officially assessed for threats to public health and the environment before being introduced to the public.

About 30,000 chemicals used in Australia since before the regulatory scheme began in 1990 have not yet been assessed by NICNAS. The network described the backlog as "gross regulatory failure" and said the bill does nothing to address it.

The Victorian Trades Hall Council told the inquiry that if the bill goes ahead, "we will have new chemicals coming into Australia that government will not know about, that the public will not know about and that workers will not know about."

Chemistry Australia, the peak national body for the chemicals industry, said the changes would "ensure that Australian users of industrial chemicals have access to the latest, most innovative chemistry on the same day as their overseas competitors".
