Appetite for Excellence Partner


Parmalat Professional is proud to partner with Appetite for Excellence in 2019 to help mentor, educate and celebrate the best and brightest young professionals within the foodservice industry.

As the dedicated foodservice division for one of Australia’s leading dairy companies, Parmalat Professional has a comprehensive portfolio across all dairy categories from milk, creams, yoghurts, desserts, cheese, butter and flavoured milk – offering leading local and global brands including Pauls, Vaalia, Tamar Valley, President, Lemnos, Jindi and Ice Break.

We proudly work and partner with all types of businesses across the foodservice industry, from larger scale hotels, caterers, hospitals, casinos and stadiums to individual businesses like cafes, educational institutions and restaurants.

However, it’s not just our leading dairy brands and products which set us apart. As a major supplier to the foodservice channel, we feel that it is our responsibility to invest and add value to the industry. We passionately believe that we need to keep striving to improve and evolve the industry – which is why we invest in the grassroots and programs such as Appetite for Excellence.

At the core, our purpose is not simply to be a supplier of dairy products. We see our true purpose as helping our customers grow their business by being the source and spark for new ways they can use dairy in their business every day – which we call ‘Everyday Fresh Ideas in Dairy’.

Our involvement in programs such as this is our way of supporting and recognising all the amazing individuals that are shaping the future of our industry. We wish the best of luck to all the 2019 Appetite for Excellence applicants.
