The Carbery Group has announced that it was acknowledged with 15 accolades at this year’s Nantwich International Cheese Awards.
Carbery secured three Gold Awards for its Dubliner Vintage Ploughman Slices, its Medium Cheddar and Half Fat Cheese.
The group was also awarded six Silver Awards for its Cracker Mature White Cheddar, Carbery Cracked Black Pepper, Lactose-Free and Smokehouse variants, and its Half Fat and Italian Style Cheese.
Carbery also picked up 1 Bronze Award for its Red Cheddar with Chillies, and five ‘Very Highly Commended’ Awards.
A Testament To Quality
Paul McGillicuddy, commercial director of the Carbery Group said that the company is delighted to have secured such recognition across a broad range of products.
“In particular, winning such prestigious awards for our reduced-fat cheeses highlights our focus and investment in this growing sector across both retail and B2B,” he said.
“We are also especially proud of the awards for our inclusion cheeses, which demonstrate how we are constantly challenging ourselves to innovate our offering, so our customers can, in turn, bring a differentiated range to their consumers, either through food service or retail outlets.”
Jerry O’Sullivan, the Carbery Group’s cheese production manager said that the recognition is a testament to the quality of its West Cork milk.
“We are very proud that we are being recognised at such a high level, as our reputation for quality is very important to our shareholders, milk suppliers and customer,” O’Sullivan added.
“It is also important for us, that our customers see that whether we are producing one of our own cheeses or cheese for one of our retail or foodservice partners, we maintain the very same commitment to quality, taste and innovation.”
