From county shows to red tractor symbols, we are proud of all the achievements of our business, our products and our people and are pleased to display a selection of them here...
The Great Taste Awards
These awards are held every year and attract around 12,000 entries across all sorts of food and drink categories. An esteemed group of over 500 judges, including chefs, food writers, restaurateurs and others, all taste a selection of products and then award a small number of them a coveted gold star – ranked from three stars to one.
They are seen as the 'Oscars' of the food and drink world and we are pleased our products have been enjoying success at these awards for the last six years.
This is our list after the 2017 awards:
This year we were especially pleased to be certified as a Great Taste producer, awarded to companies with a proven track record of achieving Great Taste awards for a minimum of three years.
Cheese and Dairy Shows
Perhaps the most satisfying awards we get are when our products are tasted and judged by people who may not even know of us.
It happens each year at County Shows like the Bath and West, the Nantwich Show (home of the International Cheese Awards) and on our home patch at the Great Yorkshire Show.
Our successes in recent years include:
Assured Food Safety and Quality
The image of the Red Tractor is a well known and respected one amongst farmers, producers and consumers.
So we are delighted that our own farms and all of our suppliers are members of this scheme which independently monitors standards of animal welfare, food safety and environmental protection.
In addition, our dairy is also accredited by the SALSA (Safe and Local Supplier Approval) food safety standard organisation. This is a body set up to independently set and monitor food producers to ensure they are adhering to legal requirements and operating to agreed industry best practices.
