The date for this year’s Global Cheese Awards, the show’s organisers has been announced.

Judging will be completed and trophies presented to the winners at the trade day on 7 September.

Last year’s rebranding of the awards, from the Frome Cheese Awards, lead to a 60% increase in entries, with a 300% rise in entries submitted by retailers.   

The show’s organisers are looking to maintain the momentum and increase the number of retail entries again this year. “It is our aim to make the 2012 awards an event that appeals to everyone industry-wide, however large or small,” said chairman Nigel Pooley.

The Frome Agriculture and Cheese Show will follow on Saturday 8 September.
