South Coast Dairy has had one of its most successful performances at the Sydney Royal Easter Show bagging five gold and a silver medal and just missing out on overall champion milk.
The Berry-based company won two golds for its 98 per cent fat free lite milk, its full cream homogenised milk, its non-homogenised milk and its skim milk.
It also collected silver for its organic full cream milk.
Chairman John Miller said the awards were recognition of its great product and hard working team.
“This result is very gratifying. Year in, year out, we are consistently getting awards, beating bigger co-ops and our more fancied rivals,” he said.
“We missed out on champion milk by about .3 of a point.
“We took up seven exhibits and came home with six awards. Five golds is the most we have ever won.
“This success is a tribute to the Shoalhaven and South Coast area.
“We produce the milk, process it and now bottle it.
“It’s a great team effort.”
