“At Norco we see your co-operative members as champions and this award is testament to Norco’s high quality standards and dedication to create fresh, great tasting dairy.

“From a product innovation perspective, we are always thriving to deliver great tasting, quality produce even to consumers who can’t drink milk, whilst offering additional revenue streams to our hard working farmer members.

“Our farmers live and breathe dairy so it’s truly a great accolade to celebrate our people’s efforts,” Mr Hampson concludes.
