A WHITCHURCH farm is celebrating once again after another outstanding performance at this year’s International Cheese and Dairy Awards.

Belton Farm picked up a host of awards at the Nantwich Show last week despite the popular event being cancelled because of the weather.

Having collected the most points in show, Belton was awarded the National Westminster Trophy for the ninth consecutive year for its points coup.

The cheese makers also received 13 trophies including Champion Modern British Cheese, Champion Cheese for Children and Champion Farmhouse Cheshire Cheese.

The company also scooped a fantastic 18 gold awards, 12 silver and 24 bronze.

Speaking after the awards, the company’s managing director Justin Beckett said: “We are absolutely delighted with our achievements.

“The International Cheese and Dairy Awards are a highlight in the awards season for the industry and it is a great honour to have our cheese celebrated in front of customers, both from the UK and overseas.”

“For Belton, our milk suppliers and all of the people we work with, it’s important to put on a great performance at the show by gaining recognition for our consistent quality, and what better than being the highest points producer in the show.”
