Any dairy producer with products available in the trade may enter. Online entries for the 2021 SA Dairy Championships can be done on the website.  Judging takes place on Thursday, 25 February and the SA Dairy Awards will be presented on Friday, 26 March at the Endler Hall in Stellenbosch in the Western Cape.

Contact Agri-Expo on 021 975 4440 or email cheese@agriexpo.co.za 


International Furmint Day 

No, that’s not a spelling mistake. Furmint is an exciting grape variety. Although it is not that widely known in South Africa, it certainly deserves more attention. Therefore, 1 February has been dedicated to celebrating this important Hungarian grape that has seen limited plantings in Mzansi. 

Check out the Facebook page for all manners of Furmint experiences.
