The Australian Grand Dairy Awards are the industry’s most prestigious and highly-regarded accolade, established to recognize excellence and quality in the Dairy Industry.

That’s Amore Cheese has won the Australian Grand Dairy Awards four times:

2012 CHAMPION FRESH UNRIPENED CHEESE– THAT’S AMORE BURRATA2013 CHAMPION FRESH UNRIPENED CHEESE– THAT’S AMORE BURRATA2014 CHAMPION FLAVOURED CHEESE – THAT’S AMORE DIAVOLETTI2017 CHAMPION FLAVOURED CHEESE – THAT’S AMORE DIAVOLETTI

This year Flavoured Cheese Champion Diavoletti it is a very unique and special product. The name translates in “little devils” and it is a small provolina shaped smoked cheese with a single chilli stuffed olive at its centre. The balance of the mild cheese, with the salty olive and a kick of chilli makes for a wonderfully unexpected taste sensation.

“What a great honor for our Diavoletti to be crowned Champion Flavoured Cheese for the second time at the Australian Grand Dairy Awards! It is the Industry’s most prestigious competition, and we are over the moon that our dedication in producing the very best quality product has been recognised again.” Says the owner, Giorgio Linguanti.

The company proudly makes Artisanal Italian style soft curd cheeses using the best quality milk, locally sourced, following only traditional Italian recipes. The cheese range includes 40 varieties of product, all free of preservatives and artificial colours.

In 2004 Giorgio arrived on the shores of Port Phillip Bay without a word of English. When he migrated to Melbourne he got a job in a cheese factory where his interest and passion for making cheese ignited. After this experience, in 2008 Giorgio started his own business ‘That’s Amore Cheese’, initially producing just one product – the bocconcini leaf.

Giorgio’s business grew rapidly and now after 8 years he moved into a bigger factory in Thomastown where they process 5 million liters of milk per year to make cheese. That’s Amore Cheese supplies top restaurants and selected Delis with six vans delivering freshly made cheese every day in Melbourne. The company also distributes Australia wide and is currently exporting to Singapore, Hong Kong, Bali, South Korea and registering to export to other market destinations.
