Kyabram dairy company Kyvalley Dairy Group has received the 2017 Family Business Australia Victorian Hall of Fame award.
The announcement came as part of last week’s National Family Business Day celebrations and recognises family businesses that demonstrate leading practices and contribute positively to the family business community, economy and culture.
Kyvalley Dairy Group director Peter Mulcahy said it was a great achievement for his business.
‘‘As we prepare to celebrate our 160 years in the making, this November, we are honoured to have been recognised by Family Business Australia for the Hall of Fame award,’’ Mr Mulcahy said.
‘‘To receive this recognition on National Family Business Day in the Victorian Parliament makes our inclusion in the Family Business Australia Victorian Hall of Fame more significant and really drives home what we are all about, supporting our family including our team to provide families with fresh milk that is of the highest quality through every part of our production value chain.’’
The Kyabram company recently took over the Kiewa Country brand from milk processor Murray Goulburn.
