Australian speciality cheese wins international competition
Australian specialty cheese manufacturer, Jindi, has beaten international competition to win two gold medals at this year’s Guild of Fine Food World Cheese Awards held in Birmingham, United Kingdom.
The competition featured nearly 2,500 entries sampled by 200 expert judges from 34 countries, including Australia. Out of four entered, two Jindi cheeses won awards.
Jindi’s washed rind ‘Fire Engine Red’ cheese won gold in the ‘Pont L’Eveque, Livarot’ category, while its ‘Heritage Blue’ cheese was also awarded gold.
Having already won in 2009, Jindi Fire Engine Red was awarded the highest score in the category, beating the French twice in the washed rinds category.
Privately owned and one of the largest Australian specialty cheese makers, Jindi Cheese is located in the heart of the Victorian dairy belt in West Gippsland.
Jindi’s CEO, Normandy-born Franck Beaurain said, “This shows that Australian cheeses can be competitive on the world stage, especially given the range of cheeses we were competing against.”
