What we stand for
The dairy industry is built from the ground up, and we are committed to making a positive difference to our people, our farmers, our customers, our communities and environments where we operate.
Since the Awards began in 2008, Fonterra‘s champion dairy foods have been recognised numerous times, and ten years on our dairy foods are still going strong, this year picking up ten gold and 38 silvers at the DIAA Awards.
Among the medals earned this year, Fonterra was awarded the Arthur E Hacquoil Memorial Gold Medallion for the highest scoring bulk butter, and the GEA Award for the highest scoring dried milk powder.
Fonterra Australia’s General Manager of Manufacturing Operations Rob Howell said it’s an amazing honour for our dairy foods to be recognised by industry experts who have such extensive dairy knowledge.
“We’ve pocketed awards across a significant number of categories – Butter, Spreads, Cheese, Fresh Milk, Cream, and Powders. Within these categories are some of our leading brands like Western Star™ and Duck River™ butters, Perfect Italiano™, and Anchor™ milk.
