St Andrews Farmhouse wins Dairy Category at Scotland Food and Drink Awards

‘St Andrews Farmhouse Cheese Company Ltd’ wins prestigious Scotland Food & Drink Excellence Award

 

 

‘St Andrews Farmhouse Cheese Co’ is celebrating after being announced as a winner at the Scotland Food & Drink Excellence Awards 2018, which took place on the 7th June at the Edinburgh International Conference Centre.

The Judges commented that

 “this excellent cheese was a ‘stand out.’ A real farmhouse feel with good texture, flavour and colour and ideal packaging”.

 

Jane Stewart, Director of ‘St Andrews Farmhouse Cheese Company’ commented,

 “we  were absolutely thrilled to win this fantastic accolade for our popular cheese.  In 2018 – as we celebrate 10 years of cheese making here on the farm – it is an especially fitting tribute to the hard work and dedication of the whole team”.

 

James Withers, Chief Executive of Scotland Food & Drink, said:

 

“Congratulations to all winners and finalists who have been selected from a record number of entries by our panel of more than 45 judges. Scotland is home to some of the most innovative producers and these awards give us the chance to celebrate just a few of them. We have a fantastic mix of established world-class businesses and a new generation of entrepreneurs coming through.

 

“Scottish food and drink is now a national success story. Our unique partnership of industry bodies and Scottish Government has driven that. However, it is the talent inside individual businesses that make our industry tick and who are putting Scotland on the global culinary map.”

 

The 2018 awards received a record number of entries. New for this year was the introduction of an Innovation category, as well as an increase in the age limit for the Young Talent to ages 26 and under, to coincide and celebrate the Scottish Government’s Year of Young People 2018.

 

Recognised by both trade and consumers as an accolade of the highest quality, the awards are organised by Scotland Food & Drink and run in partnership with The Royal Highland and Agricultural Society of Scotland (RHASS), with Asda as headline sponsor.
