Blue River Dairy Wins Westpac Primary Sector Business Award
Blue River Dairy was announced winner of the Crowe Horwath Primary & Primary Services Sector Award at the Westpac Southland Business Excellence Awards Gala dinner on Friday night.
The Westpac Southland Business Excellence Awards (WSBEA) is a showcase of the region’s business talent and capability.
Blue River began as a pioneering sheep milk company and has evolved into an export-focused infant nutrition business. Blue River continues to stand out for their niche sheep milk infant formula range, and have also increased throughput at the plant by introducing premium goat and cow milk based formula ranges in 2017 leading to a period of rapid growth.
General Manager Robert Boekhout commented, “We’re thrilled with the recognition and would like to extend our gratitude to Westpac and the Chamber of Commerce for helping to highlight through these awards the contribution successful businsesses make to the local community through jobs, economic stimulation and charitable endeavours.”
