Run by Dairy Australia these awards began in 1999 to recognise and reward excellence and innovation in Australian dairy produce and to acknowledge the achievements of the highly skilled, pioneering people who produce those products.
Only manufacturers of gold medal-winning products that are made from Australian milk and have already been through a rigorous judging process at Australian qualifying competitions are invited to enter the prestigious annual Australian Grand Dairy Awards.
As part of the Australian Grand Dairy Awards program, Dairy Australia recognises and awards the ‘best of the best’ cheese and dairy produce in the country, sponsors and supports the state qualifying competitions and manages comprehensive cheese and dairy judge-training around Australia.
