Daily Liberal: Grand win for Little Big Dairy Company

Dubbo’s Little Big Dairy Company have taken out top honours at this year’s 2018 Australian Grand Dairy Awards, with their Pure Double Cream being named Champion Cream.

Now in its 19th year, the prestigious Australian Grand Dairy Awards recognises and rewards Australia’s top producers for their expert craftsmanship across 18 products.

In a rigorous judging process, 24 dairy experts sampled hundreds of gold medal winning products to crown their champions.

Flavoursome cheeses, sensational ice creams, luscious milks and velvety yoghurts, among other products, were thoroughly assessed for flavour, aroma, texture, body and appearance.

The panel of judges, led by renowned dairy educators Russell Smith and Mark Livermore, commended The Little Big Dairy Co.’s Pure Double Cream for its gorgeous thick texture produced from very high-quality milk.

Emma Elliot, The Little Big Dairy Co said it was an honour to be recognised by the esteemed awards for their quality and craftsmanship.

“We are so humbled and proud to receive this prestigious accolade two years in a row! Single source means we see our products right though on farm processes to the bottle, guaranteeing traceability, integrity, quality and sustainability though the supply chains,” she said.

Amanda Menegazzo, convener of the Australian Grand Dairy Awards said the dairy awards are the crème de la crème of dairy and a fantastic opportunity for local farmers and producers to be recognised on a national scale for their talent, hard work and making a positive contribution to the dairy industry.

“The calibre of our 2018 Champion products is testament to our dedicated dairy producers and the one incredible ingredient all these products have in common – Australian milk. Keep your eyes peeled for our blue and gold Champion and Grand Champion medal on packaging and experience Australia’s finest,” she 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.
