Dairygold Cheese – the Awards keep on coming!

31st July 2017

2017 has been a fantastic year so far with our cheeses scooping top industry awards for their delicious taste and flavour.

Our award season kicked off in April with the British Cheese Awards which were held in Somerset where we were delighted to win two bronze awards for our American Style Soft Cheese & our Smoke White Cheddar.

At the Great Yorkshire Show in July, we were thrilled to be awarded with a gold award and the overall ‘Category Championship’ award for our sour cream which is manufactured in Leeds. Added to that, our newly developed  Cheddar Cheese Sauce  was awarded a bronze prize at the show which was a great achievement also.

International Cheese Awards

The International Cheese Awards, which are regarded as the most prestigious cheese awards for any supplier, manufacturer or retailer, were also held recently. We’re proud to say that our cheeses were selected for a number of top prizes from circa 5,000 entries.

Our  Irish White Mature Cheddar won ‘Best in Class’ and the coveted Kerrygold Trophy, which is awarded annually for the Best Republic of Ireland Cheddar. Our Irish White Mature Cheddar also went on to scoop the title of ‘Outright Award for the Best Overseas Cheddar’ and was shortlisted for the ‘Supreme Champion Cheese’ category which was a fantastic achievement.

Among the other awards we collected from the highly regarded global industry event were:

GOLD – Irish White Mature Cheddar

SILVER  – Soured Cream

BRONZE – Crème Fraiche

BRONZE – Irish White Extra Mature Cheddar

BRONZE – White Mild Cheddar Dice 4x4x23mm

Jessica Forbes from Dairygold’s Marketing Team said: “We’re absolutely delighted with our award success this year and the top industry recognition that so many of our cheese products have won. We invest great dedication, craft and skill in our cheese products which we believe is our winning formula.”
