Local dairy rises to the top at the Dairy Industry Trade Awards


The Cream Awards – Dairy Industry Trade Awards – is the premier event for UK dairy farmers. Organised by British Dairying magazine the annual event showcases some of the brightest and best people, businesses and innovations the industry has to offer. It demonstrates what the UK dairy industry can and is achieving, and its winners are ambassadors for the industry, showing leadership and innovation at a time when this is most needed.
The much-coveted Taste of Excellence award was sponsored by Morrisons Supermarkets, and Meggy Moo’s Dairy scooped the winner’s trophy for their Sea Salted Butter.
Judges comments were:
‘Won by unanimous vote from the judging panel.
‘Brilliantly balanced butter, presented well in the packaging, with a wonderful rich flavour.’
Morrisons commented: ‘Meggy Moo’s sea salted butter is up there with some of the best butters we’ve tasted in our kitchen – well done.’
Shroton-based farmers Rachael and Alan Perrett started their farm’s direct sales business in 2016, after the birth of their first daughter, Megan, was born (Meggy Moo’s is named after her). They and their robot-milking herd featured in the January issue of the BV.
‘We are thrilled and very proud to win this prestigious award for our Sea Salted Butter’ says Rachael. ‘Every product we produce is very much a team effort, so this is credit to the hard work put in by everyone at our farm.’
