Alan Kirby, cheese buyer at Booths, said, “We’re absolutely delighted with our Booths wins at the International Cheese and Dairy Awards.  This is a real credit to the skill and dedication of our cheesemakers, both in our Northern heartland and further afield.

“We’re very proud of our cheese counters here at Booths, and the colleagues who look after them.   Our colleagues are trained to share product knowledge, specialist training and the very best advice to customers.

“We specialise in cheese that has a story, whether it’s Mrs Kirkham’s Lancashire, still made with the equipment used by Graham Kirkham’s grandmother, or Wensleydale made with raw milk for a rounder flavour as it once was in the farmhouses of the Dales. Our 100-strong range also incorporates both British and European cheeses that are best in class.”
