Regulations of the Queensland Agricultural Show and Showgrounds Industry COVIDSafe Plan state that Preserve Section entries (classes 1 – 21) must be delivered in sealed jars and will remain sealed. Entries not in a sealed container will not be accepted. Jars will not be opened for judging. Exhibitors must supply a small disposable container with 1 (one) tablespoon of the preserve in addition to the full sealed jar. The sample will remain sealed until opened by the Judge for judging. The Show Society will reconfigure judging in the Preserve Section to allow distancing and to permit the removal of a face mask by a judge in order to sample entries. Once sampled by the judge, the entry may be handed to the stewards for display. Any cutlery or utensils used in the judging process must be cleaned or replaced after every class. Cleaning of cutlery and utensils must be to the cleaning requirements specific to the food industry (for example, under the Australia New Zealand Food Standards Code). At the conclusion of the Show all sample preserve entries must be discarded and disposed of in the rubbish.

Jams and Jellies etc. to be in jars or bottles of at least 500 ml (1 lb) capacity, clear glass, with screw top, except in the case of lemon or other butters.
