Its Official – Belton Make The Best English Cheese

Shropshire Cheesemakers, Belton Cheese impressed judges at the 2014 British Cheese Awards, held at the Royal Bath and West Show, as they were crowned Best English Cheese with a Traditional Cheshire Cheese, the Company then went on to win a  total haul of 22 awards.  

The British Cheese Awards play host to the finest cheese in the country with 177 Cheesemakers competing and a record 1014 cheese on show.

Belton have always prided themselves on their consistent quality and two years ago made the decision to go back to making handcrafted Traditional Cheshire cheese.  This has been a huge success and has earned the Company a number of new listings over the UK and as far afield as Russia. Cheshire Cheese has a long history and is Britain’s oldest cheese it notably has a mention in the Doomsday book.

As summer approaches Cheshire is a delicious healthy alternative to Feta as it has a third less salt and is fabulous crumbled over a salad, or as a snack with fruit.

Commenting on the win, Justin Beckett, Managing Director said,”We are absolutely delighted to have won this special award for Best English Cheese with a Traditional Cheshire as this is our local specialty and very close to our hearts. These 22 awards are the culmination of the dedication and hard work of everyone at Belton Cheese, this is a fantastic start to the show season.”
