Bothwell Cheese is celebrating after their Non-GMO Project Verified Old White Cheddar took home the award for Best West Cheese at the Canadian Cheese Awards held on June 6, 2018, in Toronto, Ont.
This is the second big win for the Non-GMO Cheddars, which also took home first place at the British Empire Cheese Awards in 2017.
“Bothwell Cheese is the first Canadian cheese manufacturer to receive the non-GMO Project Verified status, so it’s more than exciting when we receive awards for a product that we worked really hard to create,” said Nathan Dueck, Cheesemaker at Bothwell Cheese.
The Old White Cheddar, which is aged for a minimum of 9 months, is made with milk from cows fed non-GMO verified crops, giving it a distinctively sharp and recognizable flavour. It is sold in grocery stores across Canada. To find a retail location near you, visit www.bothwellcheese.ca/findus.
