Show off time.....
We have won many awards since taking over the Company in 2003. The more recent of which are listed below..... but we can't resist telling you about three of our most proud moments; in May 2017 we won 'CHAMPION CHEESE' at the Devon County Show, in 2008 we won ‘Best Cheddar’ at the World Cheese Awards and in 2013, again we won ‘Best Cheddar’ in the British Cheese Awards (122 cheddars entered!). 14 years of working on our recipe finally paid off with these accolades!
To test us further, in 2015 we were SALSA approved. [Safe and Local Supplier Approval]. This involves an independent annual audit of our Quality Management Systems, highly regarded within the British Food Industry.
Every year we strive to improve quality and, some believe, a good measure can be found in the Cheese Competitions, particularly The World Cheese Awards, The British Cheese Awards and some of the West Country Shows. Every year we enter these competitions and are proud to compete with the more famous and much longer-established Cheddar Cheese Families. (A full list of our awards dating back to 2005 is available if you're interested!) Recent awards include:
CHAMPION Cheese and 1st Prize for our Smoked Cheddar, 1st Prize for Extra Mature (Our 'Vintage') and 2nd Prize for Mature Cheddar at The Devon County Show.
Silver and Bronze at the Global Cheese Awards, Frome Cheese Show.
Bronze Medal for our Mellow Cheddar at The British Cheese Awards
Silver for Cave Matured & Bronze for Mature Cheddar at the Devon County Show
Silver for Mature, Bronze for Cave Matured and Bronze for Mild (our Mellow) Cheddar at The British Cheese Awards at The Bath and West Show
