Fonterra’s Western Star has collected its third major industry award for the year, winning a Gold and Silver medal at the 2016 Dairy Industry Association of Australia (DIAA) Queensland Dairy Product Competition.
The latest win comes on the back of recent honours at the 2016 Grand Dairy Awards where Australia’s number one selling spreads brand was voted ‘Best Original Butter’.
Fonterra Regional Manager – West, Andrew Nooy dedicated the awards to the company’s employees at its Cobden site and the 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,” he added.
“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.”
