The Qualité Awards which have been presented since 1834 established new categories for pasteurised milk and UHT milk this year. “We are only too aware that not all milk is created equal and we were pleasantly surprised by the quality of the entries we received”, said Johan Ehlers, Agri-Expo CEO. Parmalat’s Mature Gouda (10 months), made especially for Woolworths, wore the crown as the 2017 SA Dairy Product of the Year at the recently held Agri-Expo Qualité Awards Gala.
No fewer than 854 products from 83 producers vied for the special attention of the 74 judges who ranged from food technologists to cheese retailers, and food bloggers to chefs. From the large number of entries, 16 were given the Qualité mark of excellence and 95 were named South African champions.
In the pasteurised milk and UHT milk categories the judges decided to give four milk products the title of SA Dairy Champion: Clover for their Prisma full-cream UHT and low-fat UHT, Fairfield Dairy’s Woolworths Pasteurised Milk (low-fat – Ayrshire), and the Woolworths Ayrshire full-cream milk by Rhodes Food Group.
