Cornish Blue won the People’s Choice category at the Great British Cheese Awards.
“It’s brilliant to win because the competition was like no other competition we’ve entered before,” said Philip Stansfield, the founder of the Cornish Cheese Company, which produces Cornish Blue at Upton Cross on the edge of Bodmin Moor.
“The format of it was superb and the fact that the public could get involved and learn all about cheese on the way was great. Events like this raise the profile of every cheesemaker involved. Winning awards is a big thing in our industry as it gives us lots of publicity and allows us to spread the word and get it in front of new customers.”
