Star of the fridge success continues to spread for Western Star


Fonterra’s Western Star has scooped its third major industry award for the year, picking up a Gold and Silver medal at the 2016 Dairy Industry Association of Australia (DIAA) Queensland Dairy Product Competition.

Western Star is Australia’s number one selling spreads brand and has won multiple industry awards over the years. The latest win comes on the back of recent honours at the 2016 Grand Dairy Awards where Western Star was voted ‘Best Original Butter’.

Fonterra Regional Manager – West, Andrew Nooy says these awards are great recognition for the people at our Cobden site and our local dairy farmers.

“Western Star has been a family favourite for generations. To maintain that generational reputation comes down to our high-quality standards, on-going innovation and the superior cream from our farmers.

“Made with only three natural ingredients, it is the simplicity of Western Star’s recipe that makes it a winner.

“We’re seeing tremendous growth across past years our Western Star brand, which has been helped by the advent of cooking shows where more and more Australians are cooking and entertaining at home and want to use quality ingredients. You can’t go wrong with a simple, superior, high-quality product and Western Star is proof of that.”

Western Star will be celebrating its 90th birthday from October this year.
