The competition’s judging process involved 40 technical experts examining more than 1,200 dairy products.
The Victorian-based manufacturer was honoured for:
- Highest Scoring Cheddar Cheese: Warrnambool Heritage Matured.
- Highest Aggregate Score for Cheddar Cheese: Warrnambool Heritage.
- Highest Scoring Consumer Pack Cheddar Cheese: Warrnambool Heritage Vintage.
- Highest Scoring Very Hard Cheese: Mil Lel Superior Parmesan.
- Highest Scoring Italian Style Cheese: Mil Lel Superior Parmesan.
“What is evident from these accolades is that Australians still love our locally made cheeses, and it wouldn’t be possible to create such quality products without the support of our local dairy farmers,” Warrnambool Cheese & Butter General Manager of Marketing Ted Lawson said.
“It just goes to show how important it is for us to continue to support these farmers’ livelihoods and work together to produce award-winning, quality dairy products.”
The award winners will now enter the Australian Grand Dairy Awards, run by Dairy Australia, which will be announced in 2017.
