The 34th World Cheese Awards took place in Newport (Wales) on November 2nd. According to the organizers, the Guild of Fine Food, these are the largest awards event in the world dedicated solely to cheese. 250 jury members tried 4434 cheeses from 42 countries and selected the winners in a multi-stage process. For them, winning the award is an important economic stepping stone.

A small village cheese dairy from Vorderfultigen BE, which entered a Gruyère into the race – and thus achieved first place, can now benefit from this! According to the jury, the artisanal cheese offers “notes of herbs, fruits and leather” and melts gently on the tongue. The Swiss cheese thus relegated a Gorgonzola Dolce from Italy to second place.
