The Co-operative supports Cheese section at the Cheshire County Show
A COMPETITION bringing over 100 of the best cheeses from across the country to Cheshire is being backed by a leading supermarket.
The Co-operative Food has agreed to become a principal partner of the cheese section at the Cheshire County Show, held on Tuesday and Wednesday, June 19 and 20.
"Cheshire is a county famous for its cheese and we are delighted to be backing this popular section at the Cheshire County Show. Supporting quality food producers is something The Co-operative Food prides itself on,” said Mark Cloudy, The Co-operative’s Cheese Buyer.
Last year the Cheese section had over 300 entries from across the UK and even stronger entry is expected in 2012.
"In recent years the cheese section has continued to grow and with this fantastic support from Co-operative Food I hope we can attract even more producers to enter the section this year,” said David Williams, chief steward of the Cheese Section at the show.
In 2011 the Cheese Section also launched the ‘Love Cheese Eat Cheshire’ campaign to raise the profile of Cheshire Cheese in the face of a stark fall in production.
With support from local producers including Belton and Joseph Heler the campaign aims to get Cheshire Cheese back on tables across the country.
"The campaign has proved a real hit with the public so far and we hope to have more Cheshire Cheese tasters and other goodies for people to enjoy this year,” said David Williams.
