I am delighted to be Chairman of Judges for this year’s Cream Awards campaign.
As a judge I have always enjoyed seeing the number of entries that we get coming forward.
It is always great and encouraging to see the many fantastic dairy businesses that we have in the UK, and working hard to make a success of their businesses in what has been a particularly difficult year.
Entering the Cream Awards is one of the best ways you can demonstrate the innovation, ingenuity and shear hard work that is going on across the industry – and to inspire others.

GOOD REASONS TO ENTER . . .
An entry in the Cream Awards does so much for the industry. It shows what’s happening out there, the level of innovation and new ideas and thinking, it’s inspiring to others and that really is a positive force for good. It’s important to show what can be done with hard work, investment and ideas, it’s important to lead the way to a stronger dairy industry.
Enter your company or nominate someone. The campaign provides an excellent platform to shout about your business, to help you network with people and companies that can help you further your success. Our award shortlist is invited to the awards event, and after the event receive publicity in the form of article/interviews about their story.
It’s not just about winning the awards campaign really does help drive the industry forward for a better tomorrow.
