Factory Manager Vicki has been part of the Maffra family for over 17 years, and puts her heart into every batch that leaves our door. She ensures our time-honoured traditional cheese making techniques also meet stringent quality and food safety requirements.
Our Presentation and Packaging Manager goes by the name of Bee, and she certainly keeps busy. For eight years she’s ensured our cheeses are cut, sealed and packaged to perfection so our customers are happy. We take great pride in our cheeses and it shows with every order, thanks to Bee.
As the owner of Maffra Cheese Co., Ferial believes in leading by example. She starts her day at five am, when she opens up the factory and turns on the pasteuriser. She loves the technical challenge of cheese making and the process of creating new, innovative products. Ferial gains great satisfaction from producing award-winning cheeses that people love.
