Brett Dunham has been employed with Bega Cheese for 9 years. Brett commenced his career with Bega
Cheese as a casual employee in 2005, and very quickly progressed into Operator roles. In Brett’s first
interview he stated “I plan to stay with Bega Cheese long-term”. He has proven to be right, with a number
of increased leadership role changes such as Team Leader, Shift Coordinator and currently Production
Services and Formulations Coordinator. Brett has often performed above expectations and due to this he
was chosen to be given the opportunity to complete the Diploma in Food Science and Technology in 2011.
Past and current Supervisors have consistently found Brett to be very reliable and a good team player.

Beth (Maria) Alderuccio has been employed with Bega Cheese for 9 years. Beth commenced her career
with Bega Cheese as a casual employee back in 2005 progressing into the Lab as a Quality Assurance
Assistant and culminating in her current role as Quality Officer. Beth has shown commitment to Bega
Cheese and has excelled in all her roles in the Quality Assurance Department. Together with her positive
work ethic, Beth has proved herself to be a very dedicated employee, in particular her commitment to
training. In 2010 she was nominated by her TAFE assessor as Trainee of the Year for her energy and
enthusiasm displayed during her participation in Bega Cheese’s Certificate III in Food Processing
Traineeship program. Beth’s nomination and having been selected from a large group of colleagues, was
significant recognition of her commitment and dedication.
Bega Cheese saw this dedication and Beth was given the opportunity to complete the Diploma in Food
Science and Technology in 2011. Beth applied considerable effort despite having to balance a full work
load while still completing her diploma. Bega Cheese are pleased and proud of her achievements and are
confident that Beth’s career will continue to flourish.
Together with her colleagues, Bega Cheese extends its Congratulations on her achievements and the
additional honour of receiving this Academic Award.
