Colston Bassett Dairy has continued its 100th anniversary celebrations, winning both a Gold and Supergold award at the 2013 World Cheese Awards.
The dairy’s Stilton was one of just 58 cheeses that won the Supergold award, out of 2,500 entries from all over the world. Their Shropshire Blue also won a Gold award.
The competition took place at the BBC Good Food Show at the NEC in Birmingham. It was judged by more than 200 experts from the industry.
Billy Kevan, Dairy Manager at Colston Bassett Dairy, said: “It is excellent to be recognised in the top bracket of international cheeses - especially in our centenary year. The World Cheese Awards are a prestigious event and we are delighted that Colston Bassett Stilton has been awarded a Supergold.
“We hope that our traditional cheesemaking methods and using milk from our farmer members ensures that we are producing the highest quality cheese”.
Colston Bassett Dairy originally opened in 1913 to help struggling farmers.
