Amore Cheese wins two gongs at dairy awards

That’s Amore Cheese can add two more awards to its list of achievements this week after taking home two of the twelve awards up for grabs at the Australian Grand Dairy Award – Flavoured Cheese and Dairy Dessert.

The awards were held last night, Thursday 6th February and the Melbourne-based cheese manufacturer was named Champion in the following categories:
• Flavoured Cheese – That’s Amore Cheese Diavoletti
• Dairy Dessert – That’s Amore Gelato Tartufo

That’s Amore Cheese Diavoletti is a very unique and special product. It is a small provolina shaped smoked cheese with a chilli stuffed olive at its centre.

“The balance of the mild cheese, with salty olive and a kick of chilli makes for a wonderfully unexpected taste sensation, says Giorgio Linguanti, managing director at That’s Amore Cheese. “The name translates to ‘little devils’ which is fun.

“The Diavoletti has won many awards and it is fantastic to add this Australian Grand Dairy Award to the recognition.”

The Dairy Dessert category was won by the That’s Amore Gelato Tartufo. This is a hazelnut and chocolate gelato, dark chocolate ganache centre, coated in cocoa powder.

“To win one Australian Dairy Award is amazing, but to win two is a dream come true,” Giorgio continued.

“The That’s Amore Cheese team work so hard every day to produce the best quality product for our customers. We love making tasty and unique cheeses and desserts and to be recognised with two awards will spur us on to keep creating.”

The Australian Grand Dairy Awards are considered by most to be the industry’s most prestigious and highly-regarded accolades. Established to recognise excellence and quality in the dairy industry. To win, products have to have won a state-based gold medal and then they are judged by two panels of trained judges of various backgrounds including technical dairy experts, food experts, retailers, brewers, cheese mongers and chefs to provide a broad spectrum of skill to judge the awards.
