International Cheese & Dairy Awards cancelled

Ian Luxton, chairman of the awards said, “This is an unprecedented global crisis that has affected us all and we feel this is the only safe and responsible course of action.

“It is with extreme sadness we make this announcement; however our main concern is the welfare of everyone who participates in and attends our wonderful cheese, dairy and cheese accompaniments awards.”

The chairman states that all standholders will be refunded costs as agreed when booking, and sponsors will be contacted to organise alternate arrangements.

He continues, “Our heartfelt thanks go out to everyone in the dairy and food industry worldwide, from farmers, manufacturers, food service and retail outlets who are doing a vital job keeping up the supply of their fantastic products.

“We would like to sincerely thank everyone for their continued support and loyalty. The committee will be working very hard in the coming months to make sure the new 3-day event in 2021 is a huge success and a real celebration of the cheese, dairy and cheese accompaniments industries.”
