VICTORIA'S Jindi Cheese won the top Perth Royal Show dairy produce award last week, while several WA producers took multiple gold honours.
Jindi Blue, a blue mould ripened cheese, received a near-perfect score.
"The judges agreed that this cheese stood out because of its soft creaminess and the exquisite aftertaste of the 'blue'," Dairy Products Committee councillor Jeff Langdon said.
WA entrants Borrello Cheese, Harvey Cheese and Peters and Brownes stood out in a field of 320 entries, and received two or more gold awards.
Mr Langdon said all of the classes, which included milks, cheeses, chocolates and ice-creams, were well represented.
"The depth of the entries clearly demonstrated the quality and variety of dairy products produced in Australia," he said
Eastern states entries were up slightly this year, a trend organisers said was the result of companies trying to increase their presence in the WA market.
"We usually receive some entries from dairy regions in Victoria and Tasmania, but this year the number of entries rose by about 6pc," Jeff Langdon said.
Showgoers will be able to sample dairy produce at the Dairy Pavilion during the show.
