Thomastown’s Floridia Cheese is continuing to prove its cheesy credentials, winning a swag of awards from the Dairy Industry Association of Australia.
The company recently netted six awards from the association’s Australian dairy products competition and four awards at the association’s Victorian dairy products competition.
The state awards named Floridia’s burrata cheese the overall cheese champion. Its pecorino pepato and buffalo ricotta also picked up awards.
At the national awards, the burrata was the highest scoring cheese, while the pecorino pepato and buffalo ricotta picked up top awards in their categories.
Floridia finance and marketing general manager Rosalba Portella said to win six national awards from the Dairy Industry Association of Australia was phenomenal.
She said this year’s awards were the first time Floridia had entered its burrata.
“The burrata is our knock-out product,” she said.
Ms Portella said the awards were recognition of the hard work put in by factory staff and the company’s dedication to creating top products.
The awards come just three months after Floridia had four cheeses named as finalists at the Australian Grand Dairy Awards.
