  • The Fine Cheese Co, sponsors of the 'Best New Deli Award' at The British Cheese Awards is inviting retailers to enter their farm shop, delicatessen or cheese shop for this award that recognises dedication and excellence
    in the promotion of British cheese.

In an increasingly food-conscious world, the discerning customer is choosing to buy food from respected sources.
Cheese lovers are certainly no exception. The award offers those retailers that have a fantastic British cheese
selection the opportunity to highlight both their range and their company to cheese-lovers through the excellent PR
generated by The Awards, The Festival and both The Cheese Awards & The Fine Cheese Co websites.

We are privileged to have a vast selection of Artisan British Cheese now available and this Award has been
created to recognise and reward new, independent cheese retailers who promote these wonderful cheeses with
flair and passion. So if you have a great Cheese Counter and your shop has been open less than two years, why
not shout about it?

What You Need to Know
Comments Ann-Marie Dyas at the Fine Cheese Co, “The more information we have about how you serve and display your cheeses the more likely you are to win! However, we are not looking for the next David Bailey - so no videos, CD-Roms etc. Just quick, clear snaps showing how you present your cheese and any back-up material you may have.”
