Graham’s The Family Dairy has announced that its search for a new Milk Ambassador is now over. Michelle Kibaris, from Fallen Tree Coffee, Blair Drummond in Stirling has been awarded the honour, along with a free milk contract for one year.
The competition began in July to mark the indoor opening of pubs, restaurants, and cafés across Scotland after nearly four months of lockdown closure. At that time local coffee shops, family run restaurants and local pubs needed their customers more than ever.
Robert Graham Snr, chairman, Graham’s The Family Dairy said: “Michelle’s application stood out immediately; her ambition and drive for her business, passion for coffee, active community spirit and love of milk shone through. We are delighted to welcome Michelle and her wonderful business, Fallen Tree Coffee into our herd as new Milk Ambassador. Together, we will inspire others about the wonderful health, taste and quality credentials that only our milk has to offer.”
Michelle Kibaris, Fallen Tree Coffee, said: “It’s been a really challenging time trying to run a small family mobile coffee business over the last year. However, on both a business and personal level the last 6 month has really hit home and emphasised the importance of shopping local and supporting local business. Living within the farming community of Blair Drummond, I immediately jumped at the chance to apply to be Graham’s new Milk Ambassador. I thought it would be an amazing opportunity to raise the profile of my business in these challenging times, talk lots about my favourite subject of milk and how the quality of taste can impact the coffee experience, and of course get free Graham’s milk for a year!
“Although the business is slowly starting back up, so much uncertainty still remains. What was supposed to be our best and busiest business year to date, like so many others within the industry, has now become and exercise in staying afloat and keeping our business alive! I am so grateful for all opportunities that come my way and take nothing for granted, so working with the Graham family is incredibly exciting. I have so many ideas and hope that my coffee truck can get moving again, visiting events and places around the country over the next few months!”
As part of her role as Graham’s first ever Milk Ambassador, Michelle will develop written and photography content, sharing her love of the white stuff, knowledge of hidden depths of flavour and texture across milk ranges, on Graham’s website and social channels.
As the winner of the Milk Ambassador competition, Michelle won a generous milk contract, however Graham’s also awarded £500 milk contracts to both Leo’s Beanery in Edinburgh and Ciao in Bridge of Allan, as worthy runners up.
