Belleville, Ontario (November 12, 2015) – Manitoba’s Bothwell Cheese has once again claimed top spot in the Marbled Cheddar category at the 88th Annual British Empire Cheese Show – winning first place for the ninth time in the past ten years.
The company also took first place with its Monterey Jack and second place with its medium coloured cheddar.
“We continue to place well in this competition and that says volumes about the consistency and quality of our cheese,” says Bothwell Cheese President Kevin Thomson.
“Our team takes pride in what they do, from production through to packaging; care is taken every step of the way.”
“It takes considerable time and effort to grade (tasting and testing) product” says Bothwell Cheese Production Administrative Assistant Nathan Dueck.
“We select varieties that stand out based on flavour profile and texture, the ones with the potential to take us to the top.”
