LACTALIS PROFESSIONAL BRANDS CELEBRATE RECORD SUCCESS WITH OVER 3O WINS AT THE INTERNATIONAL CHEESE AWARDS 2016

Lactalis Professional is celebrating after achieving record success at the ‘Nantwich International Cheese Awards 2016’ with key brands including Président®, Lubborn, Galbani® and Seriously Strong achieving an astonishing 36 awards in total - 9 of which were Gold.

This year judges sampled a record-breaking number of entries (over 5,000) from across 27 countries - selecting only the very best as winners.

Jennifer Moulinier, Out of Home Brand Manager for Lactalis Professional is delighted with the result:

“We hear great things about our range of cheese brands on a daily basis, largely from the work we do with chefs across the industry, however for our brands to be acknowledged at the World’s biggest and best cheese awards with 36 wins is a fantastic achievement and one of which we are all extremely proud.

The fact that we have not only matched but exceeded last year’s success has come as a complete surprise and we couldn’t be more delighted.”

Made in the UK at The Lubborn Creamery in Somerset is the Gold award-winning ‘Capricorn Goat's Cheese (100g)’ which also received The Delamere Trophy for the Best Goat’s Cheese in the show.

Capricorn Goat’s cheese has a delicate velvety soft white coat and a mild, clean and slightly nutty flavour and can be enjoyed at different stages of maturity. The younger, firmer cheese can be utilised by chefs by crumbling into salads and used for grilling; whereas if left to mature up to its use by date, a creamier cheese develops for serving as a sumptuous starter.

Italy’s no.1 cheese brand Galbani® also received a Gold award for Galbani® Mozzarella Block (1kg). The fresh, milky flavour and soft, stringy texture of Galbani® Mozzarella makes it a staple ingredient for a multitude of hot and cold dishes such as salads, pastas and pizza. Extremely versatile, Galbani® mozzarella represents a true taste of Italy and is available in a variety of other formats.

Président® also had huge success, winning Gold Awards for Président® Camembert de Caractere (250g) as well as both the Président® Slightly Salted Butter Block (250g) and the Président® Unsalted Butter Block (250g).

Made with some of the finest cream in Normandy, Président® unsalted butter has a smooth, nutty fresh taste that is reflective of its French heritage.

Other notable awards included Gold for the new Seriously Strong Spreadable Vintage (125g), Silver for Président® Goats Log (1.1kg) and a Very Highly Commended award for Seriously Strong Spreadable Lighter (125g).
