Irish dairy processor Carbery Group achieved great success at the world renowned International Cheese Awards which took place recently in Nantwich, near Manchester. Taking home 13 awards in total, Carbery once again had a very successful year at the annual cheese awards.

Carbery secured the following awards at the event:

  • 3 Gold Awards for Dubliner Lighter White, Carbery Lactose and Dublin Vintage.
  • 3 Silver Awards for Carbery Cracker White, and two awards for Dubliner Ploughman Slices.
  • 3 Bronze Awards two for Carbery Special Reserve and one for 22% Reduced Fat White
  • 4 Highly Commended Awards for White Vintage Cheddar, Dublin Lighter White and two awards for White Mature Cheddar.

The International Cheese Awards attracted more than 40,000 visitors this year to Nantwich, where 300 judges sampled nearly 5,000 cheese entries across 500 categories, from more than 26 countries around the world. The awards are much coveted with cheese-makers and retailers, who make a special effort to attend the show each year.

Jerry O’Sullivan, Carbery Group Cheese Production Manager, says: “We are delighted to have secured 13 excellent awards at this year’s International Cheese Awards across a broad range of our products. It is testament to the high quality of our west Cork milk and the expertise of our team that Carbery achieves such success each year. We are proud that our innovation and continuous improvements in quality are being recognised at such a high level, as our reputation for quality is very important to our milk suppliers and our customers.”

These latest wins for Carbery adds to an already impressive number of accolades and awards it has won for its cheese production at various international competitions, most recently at the 2018 British Cheese Awards, where Carbery was crowned ‘Best Maker of Finest Mature Cheddar’ for its Carbery Cracker Cheddar Cheese.  The Carbery cheese facility in Ballineen is one of the largest cheese-production facilities in Ireland, producing almost 25% of Ireland’s annual cheddar cheese output.
