Cheese & Dairy Awards

The Royal Queensland Cheese & Dairy Awards presented by King Street stems back to the first-ever Royal Queensland Show (Ekka) in 1876, making it one of the RNA’s oldest and most prestigious competitions. 

The awards are built on longstanding traditions celebrating excellence in Australian dairy produce and are also reflective of current industry trends and changing consumer interest and demand. 

Exhibitors receive an in-depth peer to peer report for their exhibits to provide them with direct comparisons to other products within the industry. 

Renowned international food judge, cheesemaker and dairy connoisseur, Russell Smith, will once again oversee an expert judging panel made up of some of Australia’s most respected and experienced food industry professionals. 

Don’t miss this opportunity to have your products judged at the highest level, by some of the nation’s top dairy judges. The products are judged on their flavour, aroma, body, texture and presentation. 

Join us in celebrating Australia’s finest produce and benefit from this unique branding opportunity for your business.
