The dairy team has triumphed in winning 4 medals at this year’s 2017 British Cheese Awards which was held 31st May – 2nd June.

The British Cheese Awards is hosted by The Royal Bath & West Show annually and hosts over 800 British cheeses. The Awards was Established in 1994 by Juliet Harbutt to raise the profile of British cheese and create a recognised symbol of excellence for all British cheese.

3 of our handmade cheeses and Cultured butter made great impressions on the judges. In the Semi-soft category, Bringewood scooped Gold, Bromfield Priory Creamy and Cultured butter won Silver and blue cheese Remembered Hills gained Bronze.
Dudley Martin, dairy manager at Ludlow Food Centre, said, "I am so proud of what our team has achieved. The competition was fierce and to gain 4 medals is a fantastic achievement. We are continually striving for excellence with all our cheeses and to have our cheeses and butter recognised by the independent experts at The British Cheese Awards makes all the hard work by the dairy team worth it.”

Jon Edwards, Managing Director said, “I have a team to be very proud of. We only have a small team working in our dairy and yet we consistently produce some of the best cheeses in the UK and I am thrilled that the team’s cheeses have received the recognition they truly deserve."
Ludlow Food Centre typically stocks around 50-60 artisan cheeses specially selected by Dudley and his team, along with the nine-national award-winning handmade cheeses he makes on site with his fellow cheesemaker Paul Bedford.

All of our cheeses are stored in a specialist ripening fridge at optimum temperature and humidity to ensure each cheese is in perfect condition before transferring to its cheese counter, which was opened in 2015.
