“Somerset and Bruton based cheese maker Godminster won the best packaging trophy at the prestigious British Cheese Awards 2016 held at the Royal Bath and West Show yesterday
The team picked up the award for its signature burgundy waxed Vintage Organic Cheddar heart. The judges placed the heart shaped cheddar first for its winning combination of shape, colour, classic design and award-winning taste.
Receiving the award on behalf of Godminster, Deborah Bradfield, Head of Sales & Marketing, commented: ‘We’re thrilled to have won this prestigious award. Our Vintage Organic Cheddar has been widely praised for its flavour. It’s great that the judges decided it looks as good as it tastes. This makes all the hard work that the team put in to producing high quality cheeses every day worthwhile. To have been recognised by the judging panel against such strong competition is a credit to everyone involved.’
The British Cheese award adds to Godminster’s successes at the Guild of Fine Food Taste Awards, the International Cheese Awards and the Global Cheese Awards. The British Cheese Awards were founded by Juliet Harbutt, one of the world’s leading authorities on cheese, in 1994. The Royal Bath and West Show took over the running of the awards in 2015. The awards recognise the efforts of the UK’s leading cheese producers, big and small.”
