Some readers may know that National Milk Tart Day was on 27 February and in the spirit of this, the Milk Producers Organisation (MPO), in conjunction with Jeffreys Bay Tourism, hosted a milk tart competition on 28 February.

According to the MPO’s newly appointed Eastern Cape representative, Anri Wolmarans, the organisation hopes that it will lead to many more such events to encourage South Africa’s (SA) consumers to make use of the many health benefits of milk.

Milk production and equipment should make financial sense

This year’s MPO milk tart competition took place in Kouga and, from next year on, they hope to also expand this to other regions. This year’s competition took place at Mentorskraal in Jeffreys Bay and can be heralded as a huge success.

The MPO would like to thank each and every participant for their efforts and entries, including the sponsors and judges who picked the winners from dozens of first-class milk tarts, most of which were donated to Jeffreysrus Retirement Village.

This year’s MPO Milk Tart Competition winners are:

  • In first place is Margot Speed, who won two nights’ accommodation at Seashells Guest House in Jeffreys Bay.
  • In second place is Eileen Coetzee, who won an all-expenses included educational outing for four people to a local dairy farm, plus drinks at Huisklip.
  • In the third place is RenĂ© van Emmenis, who won an awesome hamper sponsored by Woodlands Dairy.
