Futura Foods, the UK’s leading supplier of Mediterranean-inspired dairy products, is toasting a big win at the highly prestigious International Cheese Awards, held last month in the north west of England.

Five of Futura’s cheeses were awarded highly sought after distinctions, with judges, including leading chefs, food writers and dairy experts, handing out no less than three silver and two bronze medals. The company’s Goats Cheese with Honey; Sheep’s Milk Cheese with Pedro Ximenez and Barrel Aged Feta all scored silver, while its Goat’s Cheese with Black Pepper and recently launched Halloumi Fries, picked up bronze; the latter doing so in a specialist foodservice and catering class.

This fresh haul is yet another big win for Futura at the International Cheese Awards following 2017’s record haul of 11 medals. National Account Controller, Jo Carter, comments: “We’re delighted to yet again be honoured at the International Cheese Awards. The calibre of judges and class of competition are so high, which make medals extremely hard to come by. The haul is testament to the hard work carried out by our team and partner dairies to source and produce the very finest cheeses from across Europe – yet another proud achievement for the Futura family.”

Futura Foods is one of the largest suppliers of continental cheese to the UK and Ireland. The range includes Greek, Cypriot, Italian, Spanish and Northern European cheeses from carefully selected partner dairies across Europe. The company’s flexible distribution network enables it to supply an extensive range to retailers, wholesalers, food manufacturers and foodservice.
