Local diary producer Barambah Organics has been named as one of the top three light milks in the country in the Australian Grand Dairy Awards. Its Light Milk product is a finalist in the Speciality White Dairy Drink category, up against two products by northern New South Wales dairy giant Norco.

The company has been manufacturing organic dairy products in the Border Rivers region of Queensland/New South Wales. Jane Campbell of Barambah Organics said the team were delighted to be nominated.  “We are up against some tough competition. It’s good for our team’s morale to be in the running and to be recognised as one of the best three Light Milks in the country,” she said. “The health and wellbeing of the herd is [Barambah Organics’] priority,” Jane said. “Our team know just how important it is to keep our animals happy. Happy cows makes for good milk!”

Goondiwindi Regional Council Mayor Graeme Scheu congratulated the team on the scale of their achievement and said he continues to be impressed by the success of the region’s produce. “We should all be so proud of some of the outstanding producers we have in the Goondiwindi region,’ Cr Scheu said. “Our agricultural excellence is the real backbone to our community and it’s great to see that recognised and so much positivity from people who get behind our producers. Achievements like these are part of our region’s thriving success story. It’s why I’m so proud to tell people we are Regional Australia at Its Best.”

The Australian Grand Dairy Awards began in 1999 to recognise excellence and innovation in Australian dairy produce. Dairy products must be made from Australian milk and have been awarded a gold medal in state-wide competitions in order to qualify for entry. Barambah Organics products are only available at independent stores like the Co-Op in Goondiwindi and the Spar in Inglewood. The public can support Barambah Organics’ Light Milk in the Australia Grand Dairy People’s Choice Awards by voting here. The winner will be announced on January 31 2019.
