19 dairy delicacies from around Australia have been crowned awards at the 2016 Australian Grand Dairy Awards.
Now in its 17th year, the prestigious awards, convened by Dairy Australia, recognised and rewarded Australia's top producers at an exclusive ceremony in Melbourne last night.
From small family owned producers to the well-known supermarket brands, the panel of judges delibrated their way across the cheese, yoghurt, ice cream, milk, butter and dip categories to detemine the two Grand Champion dairy products for 2016.
According to the convener of the Australian Grand Dairy Awards Amanda Menegazzo, Bulla scooped up the dairy Grand Champion title for its Creme Fraiche, which the judges deemed a light, delicate and fresh take on the classic cooking favourite.
"The varied range of this year's winning products shows a real shift in Australia's taste buds, and we're extremely impressed with the diversity of this year's Champions. These awards are the highest accolade for a dairy producer in Australia and the grand final of dairy competitions in the country, recognising the best of the best dairy" Menegazzo said.
Established in 1999, the Australian Grand Dairy Awards are Australia’s most prestigious national dairy awards and the highest accolade for Australian dairy producers.
