For many of us, 30 July is a day of victory that we will always remember.
It is, of course, the day that England won the World Cup in 1966. It is also (and some might say more importantly!) the date of the International Cheese Awards. This year’s awards – the biggest in the industry – have been a storming success for our products.
In total we took home six Gold awards, six Silver, six Bronze and three Very Highly Commended awards for our own-brand products. And despite the name, the ceremony isn’t just about cheese. Whilst we did have plenty of cheesy winners, from a crumbly Finest Barrel Aged Feta to the sharp Finest English Vintage Cheddar, our victorious products were as diverse as our Scottish Unsalted Butter and our Finest Greek Yoghurt too.
These awards are testament to the hard work of our teams who have developed these products, and to the strength of our partnerships with the producers that make them.
You can see the full list of award-winning products below – why not try a few with friends and family, or even pair them with some of our award-winning wines too!
To celebrate the awards, we’re giving away a hamper with some of the winning products. To enter, share your cheesiest joke with us on Yammer using the hashtag #cheese, or in the comments below. We’ll pick our favourite – the cheesier the better – at midday on 6 August.
