2013: A Big Year Behind and Ahead of Brownes!

Made fresh by Brownes Dairy, and filed under General


Our team at Brownes takes incredible pride in the quality of the products we produce. So we’re very excited to share that we’ve been recognised by our peers in a pretty big way.

At the recent Dairy Industry Association of Australia Awards, we received First Place recognition for the following products produced in Balcatta : Brownes Kick Double Choc, Brownes Skim Milk, Brownes Full Cream Milk, Brownes Heart Plus Milk, and Brownes Light Garlic & Parsley Sour Cream.

Our Brunswick team was also recognised and received First Place for Passionfruit West N Fresh Gourmet Yoghurt, and to top it all off – our Matured Cheddar was awarded Grand Champion for the finest dairy product in the state of Western Australia! This is an amazing tribute to Donald Simpson and his years of dedication and commitment to perfecting his craft of cheese making. It is also a testimony to the experienced and talented team at the Brownes site in Brunswick.

To add to the week of awards, Brownes was also delighted to learn that the Use Buy Date Campaign (Save WA Dairy) was awarded Campaign of the Year at the WA Advertising Awards held by Campaign Brief on Friday, March 15.

Brownes is so proud and thankful for everyone involved in the campaign. These individuals worked tirelessly in the weeks leading up to the launch, and for the duration of the campaign.  And of course, it wouldn't have been the success that it was without all of our amazing farmers – those who were on camera and those who were behind the scenes.

Through the creation of the television ad, we were able to give the public a glimpse of our farmers’ strength, determination, humour and passion for what they do every single day, which is producing the freshest and best quality milk in WA!

The people of WA loved this campaign and are behind us in our quest to save WA Dairy!  This is just the beginning, Brownes is going to continue to make a stand of the WA dairy industry. Stay tuned for the next exciting campaigns!
