Kyabram camel milk producers Camel Milk Co has found joy in the toughest of times, claiming a spot among the state winners in the 2019 Delicious Harvey Norman Produce Awards.
The award has come at just the right moment for the company after a tough couple of months under poor conditions.
Tee Rowe from Camel Milk, said the win was a delightful surprise and were thankful to the Sydney chef, Brent Savage’s nomination.
“His restaurant has been using our camel milk and feta in one of their dishes for some time now.”
As one of eight winners in Victoria for their dairy products, Rowe truly believes in the quality of the company’s unique produce.
“It really shows the integrity of our product; camel milk is quite new for most Australians but this has helped heighten our profile and make people more aware of us and what we do,” she said.
“People can often be scared to try new things but I think we are starting to show people that it can be used as a regular product as well as in novelty or luxury items.”
The state winners from each category will now progress on to a blind-tasting by a national judging panel, with the winners to be announced in Sydney on 19 August.
