Mastatest was awarded Commended at the 2023 Cream Awards (UK Dairy Industry Trade Awards) in the hotly contested Innovation category, at an event in London on September 7th. This is a fantastic result for us, and further evidence for the benefits of Mastatest.
The 2023 Award for Innovation, sponsored by British Dairying, was hotly contested. The shortlist included ten companies, each with innovations supporting different aspects of the dairy industry.
Launched in the UK just over a year ago, Mastatest has built a strong customer base amidst growing recognition among UK vets and farmers of the benefits of the selective use of antibiotics for mastitis. To learn more about Mastatest, visit our main website pages.
Attending the event as guests of Mastaplex were Ben McCarthy and Matt Jakeman, both from our UK sales partner AgSenze, and Joe Nelson, the New Zealand Trade Commissioner for UK and Ireland (photo below).
Joe Nelson commented "This achievement underscores the spirit of collaboration and innovation between New Zealand and the UK's dairy industry. New Zealand's Agritech solutions are highly sought after in the UK, and Mastaplex stands out as a great example of a NZ Agritech company bringing field-proven solutions to British farmers. The award is a resounding vote of confidence from the UK's dairy farming community."
Mastaplex CEO, Dr Olaf Bork, commented "We're hugely proud to be recognised among the best innovations in the UK dairy industry. We've loved hearing the success stories from UK customers who have adopted Mastatest on their farms or in their clinics over the past year, and this award is another great reminder of the impact Mastatest can have."
Many thanks to the organisers, judges, event sponsors, and the many individuals and companies who made this a fantastic event.
Special thanks to all of those who have helped the successful Mastatest launch in the UK, including our sales partner AgSenze, NZTE, our market advisors, and of course the growing customer base of farmers and veterinarians who are using Mastatest on British farms.
