23rd April 2021 | Eativity editors

Legen-dairy! Norco, Australia’s only 100 percent farmer-owned dairy co-operative, has been awarded top honours in Canstar Blue’s Most Satisfied Customer awards for 2021.

It’s not the first time the brand has been recognised in the prestigious awards, having taken out the title in the competitive milk category for two years in a row.

More than 3000 Australians awarded Norco’s Fresh Full Cream Milk top marks across all categories, including taste, freshness, value for money and packaging design.

Five stars: Norco has won the Most Satisfied Customer Award for the past two years.

“To receive a five-star rating for overall satisfaction from our customers, the highest score achievable, is a huge honour – especially in such a competitive category,” says Norco CEO Michael Hampson. “It’s testament to the dedication and passion of all our Norco farmers and team members, who work to ensure that Norco’s range of delicious, high-quality dairy products are available to Australian households, day in and day out.

“We’re so grateful to all our customers who continue to use their purchasing power to support our 126-year-old, 100 percent farmer-owned co-operative. It’s thanks to them that we’re able to do what we do, and ensure the long-term sustainability of the dairy industry.”

Norco pays a highly competitive milk price to its co-operative members.

Norco beat eight other brands, including national supermarket brands, to take out the top position in the Fresh Full Cream Milk Category.

“To see Norco rated best for fresh milk is a real testament to the quality and value this Aussie brand brings to the market,” says Canstar Blue Acting Editor-in-Chief, Megan Birot.

“Fresh milk is a staple for many households, making this category so competitive, with both big-name brands and supermarket labels to contend with. The fact that Norco also rated best for every single driver of satisfaction is an outstanding achievement. “

Established in 1895 in Byron Bay, Norco is now one of the only remaining true Australian farmer-owned dairy co-operatives, with more than 300 members across northern NSW and south east Queensland. For more information, head to
