Nantwich Cheese Scrap - The Results

AN APRIL 2010 Cave Aged Cheddar from Ford Farm in Dorset has been crowned Supreme Champion at this year’s International Cheese Awards in Nantwich, Cheshire. It wins the accolade ahead of more than 3,700 other competitors.

We are absolutely delighted to receive this award which is the most prestigious accolade in the industry

A panel of expert judges from the dairy industry judged the Long Clawson Dairy Stilton as the Nantwich Reserve Supreme Champion, a ULN Brie was judged Supreme Champion Overseas. Asda won the Supreme Retailer Award.   

Richard Paul, Show Chairman, said: “We had more than 3,700 entries in all and for the Aged Cave Cheddar to have beaten them all to become Supreme Champion means it is a truly exceptional cheese. 

“Our panel of 150 expert judges are looking for flavour, for overall appearance and for the truly remarkable – and with our Supreme Champion, along with all the other category winners and runner ups, they found it. 

“All winners can now feature the International Cheese Awards logo on packaging, and when a shopper spots it they can be safe in the knowledge that the product has been judged, by experts, as outstanding.” 

Ford Farm is owned by the Barber family who purchased the business in 2010. Barber family member Charlie Barber speaking from the awards said: “We are absolutely delighted to receive this award which is the most prestigious accolade in the industry. It’s a testament to the hard work of our managing director Mike Pullin and the wider Ford Farm team that their efforts have been recognised by this calibre of industry peers. This is the perfect stepping stone for our business as we look to roll out a number of new products an ideas in the coming years.”
