An emerging Sydney food company has won the 2017 Telstra NSW New Business Award.

Winner of the award, Over The Moo, is a producer of dairy-free ice cream made using coconut milk. Despite only establishing in 2015, Over The Moo already supplies both Woolworths and independent supermarkets.

In accepting the award, Over The Moo Founder and Head Honcho, Alexander Houseman, said starting and growing the business has been the most fulfilling experience of his life.

“I have a vision for Over The Moo’s dairy-free deliciousness on shelves in every single supermarket around the country and beyond,” he stated.

Houseman said the awards were also a great opportunity to see how his business was tracking against others.

“We entered because we were keen to see how we measured up against other businesses of the same age and to see where we could be doing better. Being tapped as one of the top businesses in NSW was totally unexpected.”

Houseman came up with the idea for Over The Moo as a lactose intolerant ice cream lover who wanted a better dairy-free alternative.

Over The Moo recently appeared in an episode of Channel Ten’s Shark Tank which sees new businesses pitch to a panel of business investors. Over The Moo ultimately rejected the investors offers but soon after the show went on to become a Woolworths supplier.
