The cheese company “Rupp” received gold for its “Alma Kräuterschatz” as did the Upper Styrian dairy for its “Erzherzog Johann” and the Gmundner dairy for its “Gmundner Berg Premium”. Silver medals were awarded to Berglandmilch/Wels and the Vorarlberger dairy “Huban” among others. The “Schärdinger Österkron” and “Rupp Spätburgunder Wine Cheese” took home bronze.
