Dairy cooperative Dale Farm has again been recognised for its world-class quality products, picking up several accolades at the International Cheese and Dairy Awards 2021.
With over 5,000 entries competing from across the globe, the awards are the world’s largest platform to champion best-in-class producers.
Dromona Medium Cheddar scooped both gold and silver in the Best Medium Cheddar category and was subsequently awarded the trophy for Best Medium Creamery Cheddar, while Dromona Mature Cheddar won both silver and bronze in the Best Mature Cheddar category.
“Our world-class dairy products come from world-class milk produced by the 1,300 farmers within our cooperative, and the craftmanship of our people who use it to make award-winning cheese,” said Caroline Martin, corporate marketing & communications manager, Dale Farm.
"These awards are a guarantee of product quality for our consumers, and we are immensely proud to once again have our delicious cheese recognised on a global stage."
Dale Farm markets its cheese ranges under the Dale Farm and Dromona brands in Northern Ireland and Great Britain across retail, food service and ingredient channels.
The company produces 50,000 tonnes of cheddar per annum from its state-of-the-art plant in Cookstown, Co Tyrone, using milk supplied by its dairy farmer owners.
