Delamere Dairy scooped THIRTEEN awards including FIVE TROPHIES at the International Cheese & Dairy Awards including SUPREME CHAMPION DAIRY PRODUCT for its plain goats’ yogurt.
Taking place on 21st October and beating off competition from over 4000 entries, as well as recognition for its goats’ yogurt Delamere picked up gold prizes for its goats’ milk, cheddar style cheese and its newly reformulated spreadable goats’ cheese.
New for 2021, was the George B Lawrence MBE Trophy for the ICDA Supreme Champion Dairy Product and Delamere was delighted to win the accolade in its first year.
Ed Salt, MD at Delamere Dairy commented, “It goes without saying that we were thrilled to receive the Supreme Champion Dairy for our Goats’ Yogurt. The fact that our goats’ yogurt came out on top against more mainstream dairy entries is a testament to the quality and flavour that goats’ products can deliver. It was a great day for goats with the Supreme Champion cheese also being goat.”
Delamere Dairy’s plain goats’ yogurt won the Clawson Salver for the Best Yogurt in Show as well as the Supreme Champion Dairy Product. Keeping it company were the strawberry and honey flavoured goats’ yogurts which won silver and bronze awards respectively.
Newly reformulated in October 2021 and launched for the awards, Delamere’s spreadable goats’ cheese collected The Orchard Valley Dairy Supplies Trophy for the Best Soft Cheese in Show and The Cheese Company Trophy for the Champion Modern British/ Irish cheese. The cheese is fresh and creamy with a natural acidity and soft, spreadable texture. Judges commented on its excellent aroma, clean, fresh flavour and superb texture. Made at a family dairy in Wiltshire, the cheese is delicious straight from the pot on crackers, and is also extremely versatile for use in baking and cooking.
Finally, the key to success of all Delamere products, its whole goats’ milk collected a gold award and the ICDA award for Champion Milk in Show, beating competition from fresh and long life, raw and pasteurised, plain and flavoured milk from cows, sheep and goats. A real testament to the quality and mild flavour of Delamere’s goats’ milk.
Delamere’s range also collected gold, silver and bronze awards for its mild and medium cheddar style goats’ cheese, its semi-skimmed goats’ milk and its Greek goats’ cheese.
