Australian Grand Dairy Awards


Dairy Australia would like to advise the cancellation of the 2021 Australian Grand Dairy Awards competition.

With uncertainty around COVID-19 restrictions in the coming months and consideration of the health and safety of our judges, stewards and staff, the annual October judging has been cancelled. Furthermore, the cancellation of many of the Royal Agricultural Society and Dairy Industry of Australia shows impacts on the ability to contribute gold medal winners to the Australian Grand Dairy Awards competition. The decision has not been taken lightly.

The Australian Grand Dairy Awards began in 1999 to recognise and reward excellence and innovation in Australian dairy produce and to acknowledge the achievements of the highly skilled, pioneering people who produce those products. The 2020 judging and 2021 event was due to be our 22nd awards.

We thank you for your understanding and support and look forward to returning in 2021 for another year of celebrating the country’s most outstanding dairy producers and their products.

An Australian Grand Dairy Award represents quality, excellence and innovation in Australian dairy produce.

Held annually, these awards recognise the finest dairy and cheese products from around Australia and celebrate the inspiring stories behind the winning finalist and champion products.
