The NDC & Kerrygold Quality Milk Awards is an annual national award programme which recognises standards of excellence in dairy farming. Dairy co-operatives throughout the country are invited to nominate their top suppliers for the awards each year which are then shortlisted. Each year, every finalist is visited by the judging panel and measured against a list of exacting standards, including a review of milk quality reports and technical data spanning a full 12 month period combined with best practice in critical areas such as sustainability, care of the environment, animal health and welfare and overall farm management. The judging process is as exacting as befits an award which recognises excellence in an industry known around the world for the quality of its product. For more info visit www.qualitymilkawards.ie.
