Riverina Fresh announced as official Australia’s Richest Barista milk sponsor

Following a successful partnership for the inaugural competition in 2023, Riverina Fresh will once again be the official milk sponsor of Australia’s Richest Barista at MICE2024.

The knock-out style competition is one of the most exciting in Australia, thanks to the talent of the baristas and the $40,000 prize pool. Dairy specialist Riverina Fresh will provide all the milk for the first two rounds of the showdown, which takes place between 12 to 14 of May at the Melbourne Exhibition and Convention Centre.

“As a proud 100 per cent Australian-owned company, we’re honoured to sponsor the 2024 Australia’s Richest Barista competition, which fosters excellence and innovation in our coffee community,” says Riverina Fresh Executive Chairman and CEO Craig Shapiro.

The competition consists of three rounds. In the first, baristas will be asked to create six drinks (two espresso, two milk-based drinks, and two signature beverages) in just 10 minutes. Competitors will use Riverina Fresh products to craft their milk-based pours.

The second round will see the competitors show off their latte art skills, producing six more drinks in 10 minutes. In the third round, finalists go head-to-head in a nail-biting cup taster’s challenge, before the winner is crowned Australia’s Richest Barista and takes home their share ($25,000) of the prize money.

“Our sponsorship of the 2024 Australia’s Richest Barista Competition reflects our belief in investing in the future of the Australian coffee industry,” Craig says.

“It provides a great opportunity for baristas to showcase their skills on a national stage.”
