Lactalis McLelland has scooped an impressive 38 awards at the 120th annual International Cheese Awards, making the cheese producer one of the major success stories at the show, which took place last month.
Lactalis McLelland’s haul included three trophies and 15 gold awards. The company’s Lubborn Cricket St Thomas Creamery led the way with ten awards, including two trophies: the Delamare Dairy Trophy, which was awarded to Lubborn Goat’s Milk Brie for the best goat’s cheese in show; and the Waitrose Trophy, which was awarded to Capricorn Goat’s Milk Cheese for the best cheese in the specialist cheesemakers section.
The company’s third trophy, the Doceur de France award, was presented for Rachel’s Salted Butter.
Other impressive performances included the Seriously Spreadable brand which collected six awards, two of which were golds awarded to the Seriously Spreadable Squares variant.
The company’s iconic No 1 Italian cheese brand, Galbani, also performed admirably, picking up five awards – two golds and two silvers and a very highly commended.
“We are delighted to have achieved so many awards across such a wide spectrum of product categories,” said Mike Chatters, Sales Director for Lactalis McLelland, which was one of the major sponsors of the 2017 International Cheese Awards.
