UK cheeses to be championed at international trade show

The Cheese & Dairy Products Show has established itself as one of the leading events in the dairy sector dedicated to traditional cheeses. The event is intended as a platform where cheesemongers, restaurateurs and distributors meet producers and equipment manufacturers from across Europe.

Neal’s Yard Dairy, Wyke Farms, The Fine Cheese Co. and Bradburys Cheese are amongst a few of the confirmed names that will be representing the UK cheese industry contingent.

The show’s organisers state that there is to be 20 per cent more new businesses expected at this year’s event, with the show expanding its offer by welcoming a number of exhibitors specialising in shop fitting and equipment for retailers.

There is also a Discovery Zone for producers exhibiting for the first time. The exhibitors will be grouped together in the same stall and will receive a discounted price package. The Discovery Zone is intended to be a springboard for artisan cheesemakers, enabling them to acquire leads and grow their businesses.

Céline Glineur, director of the Cheese & Dairy Products Show said, “The fifteenth edition promises to mbe an unmissable event with a wealth of new features. The UK, with such a variety of cheeses undiscovered beyond its shores, was an obvious choice for the show’s first guest country.”

Alain Dubois, chairman of the Cheese & Dairy Products Show said, “This year we want to promote traditional cheesemaking and the excellence of our French and European producers. The exhibition will focus primarily on traditional cheeses but also on related services including cheesemaking equipment and cheese gastronomy. Our visitors come from all four corners of the world and we want to provide them with plenty of diversity.”
