'In turn, it raises our company and product profile and enables us to capitalise on the opportunity by labelling our products as award winning.' Their cheddar was named as the best overall cheese at the Cheshire Show with the firm, which employs 175, also winning two golds, a silver and a bronze.

At the World Cheese Awards back in March, the company were awarded silver and bronze prizes.
