BOX #035 | March WOmen in Dairy
Whether they're making it, farming it, selling it or championing it, we're lucky to work with an incredible array of the best dairy professionals in the business, many who happen to be women. This month we are celebrating the amazing women in the dairy. All cheese in this box is from some amazing female cheese makers.
It's no coincidence that this month's box features some amazing women in the biz as its coincidences International Women's Day (March 8th).
The theme for International Women’s Day 2023 is ‘Cracking the Code: Innovation for a gender equal future’. This theme is based on the United Nations 67th Commission on the Status of Women priority theme ‘Innovation and technological change, and education in the digital age for achieving gender equality and the empowerment of all women and girls’.
Here at Mould which is female lead we could be more proud to support female business women in the wonderful world that is Australian dairy. This box is a very special one to us.
So many of the outstanding women, who we have the privilege to work with and call our friends, are driving sustainability, innovation and change within the Dairy industry and beyond.
And we wanted to celebrate that!
In this month's cheese box we're showcasing cheese from Grandvewe, Second Mouse Cheese, Dreaming Goat and Goldfield Farmhouse which all have amazing women at their core.
We could have added many, many more in this month's offering so we encourage you all to seek, celebrate and champion the amazing work the women in dairy do.
