RQFWS Cheese & Dairy Produce Show
The Royal Queensland Food & Wine Show (RQFWS) Cheese & Dairy Produce Show presented by King Street stems back to the first-ever Royal Queensland Show (Ekka) in 1876, making it one of the RNA’s oldest competitions.
The awards are built on longstanding traditions celebrating excellence in Australian dairy produce and are also reflective of current industry trends and in particular, changing consumer interest.
Positively received by exhibitors in 2019, exhibitors will once again receive an in-depth peer to peer report for their exhibits to provide them with direct comparisons to other products within the industry.
Renowned international food judge and cheesemaker, Russell Smith, is once again Chief Judge of the RQFWS’s Cheese & Dairy Produce Show.
Mr Smith, who has more than 25 years experience in the industry, will oversee an expert judging panel made up of some of Australia’s most respected and experienced food industry professionals.
Don’t miss this opportunity to have your products judged at the highest level, by some of the nation’s top dairy judges. The products are judged on their flavour, aroma, body, texture and presentation.
Join us in celebrating Australia’s finest produce - this is a unique branding opportunity for your business, so make sure you don’t miss out.
