Cheese to show off

2018-02-28 06:01

A competition for dairy producers will form the core of the 2018 Bloem Show to be staged from 26 April to 5 May in Bloemfontein.

It will highlight the importance of the industry as one of the chief drivers in the country’s economy, according to Elmarie Prinsloo, chief executive officer.

“The Bloem Show is the only show in the country where a dairy product competition still takes place.

“Companies manufacturing any dairy pro­ducts should not miss out on this opportunity to enter this year’s dairy products competition and compete against the rest of the market and competitors.

“Any dairy manufacturing company can enter the competition in the 15 categories, including butter, gouda cheese, cheddar cheese, special and exotic cheeses,” says Prinsloo.

She says last year 216 entries were received for the competition, adding that this year entries are expected from approximately 12 factories across South Africa.

The closing date for entries is today (28/02) with judging and announcement of the 2018 winners taking place on 14 March ahead of the start of the annual show.
