Australian Grand Dairy Awards

Calling all dairy enthusiasts: The Australian Grand Dairy Awards is looking for amateur judges

Consider yourself a lover of all things dairy? Well listen up! The time has come for you to put your days of late night gelato tasting and cheese board sampling to the test.   

At the end of October, the country’s most esteemed dairy judges will don their judging coats to sip, nibble and spoon over 400 of Australia’s finest dairy products. Their goal? To handpick Champions across 17 dairy-licious categories. But there’s one award the judges can’t determine…

Here’s where you come in

The Australian Grand Dairy Awards are inviting five dairy enthusiasts and their chosen guest to help judge the 2018 People’s Choice category. Yes, this is serious. Yes, there will be a selection of products from milk and gelato to cheese and yoghurt to taste and score. 

As apprentice judges, you’ll get the judging 101 with Australian Grand Dairy Awards Judge and Cheesemonger Sonia Cousins, before being let loose on an exclusive selection of Australia’s finest dairy products made from 100% Australian milk.



With your clipboard in hand and pencil at the ready, you and your guest will move through the tasting stations scoring products on their flavour, aroma, texture and presentation. The event is set to be a once-in-a-lifetime immersive celebration of the senses. 

The best part? Our apprentice judges’ scores will be combined with the public vote to help decide the winner of the 2018 People’s Choice Award (People’s Choice Awards voting will open to the public mid-November).
