The honours kept coming with Norco going on to win a further 29 medals across numerous categories, 9 of these being Gold.

The Queensland Dairy Industry Association Awards of Excellence recognise and award excellence, quality, and innovation in dairy produce, paying tribute to the highly skilled Australians who farm, develop, and make these products, shining a spotlight on Queensland produce.

Every year products covering 12 different classes are judged in an arduous and highly technical assessment process by an expert panel. Each product is tasted, tested, and assessed for flavour, aroma, body, texture, colour, and appearance to identify the highest scoring products…the cream of the crop.
