Dalewood Fromage crowned 2016 SA Dairy Product of the Year

Wednesday, 27 April proved to be a memorable Freedom Day for Dalewood Fromage when it was awarded the prestigious 2016 South African Dairy Product of the Year for its 12 month matured Huguenot cheese at the annual Agri-Expo Qualité Awards Dinner. The gala dinner took place at Grand West Casino in Cape Town.

The Huguenot, developed by Rob Visser in 2003, is the largest head of cheese in South Africa and the signature cheese of Dalewood Fromage. This semi-hard, brushed rind cheese with its unique flavour and texture is medium-full in character with nutty overtones and has consistently won numerous prestigious awards since 2004.
