Promoting excellence in speciality food & drink

World Cheese Awards

For over 20 years the World Cheese Awards has been bringing together buyers and sellers from the dairy industry worldwide. It’s the largest cheese competition on the planet, attracting over 2,700 entries in 2013 from 34 countries and it was judged by over 250 experts from every corner of the globe. It takes an entire day to judge, with a trade lunch thrown in, making this a place to do real business too. This year we have a new home as we move to BBC Good Food Show, Olympia, London 14-16 November 2014.

How the competition works

The anticipated 3,000 cheese entries will be staged in a massive 1000m2 area within the main BBC Good Food Show London and judging will take place on the opening day, November 14, in front of a live consumer audience. Our 250 experts from around the world will work in teams of four, identifying medal-winning cheeses through the morning. Each gold-winning cheese will then be judged a second time by a different jury after a well-earned trade lunch. We will then know the top 50 cheeses in the world – the Super Golds. The Supreme Jury of 12 experts, representing the four corners of the globe, will then assemble in front of a packed consumer and trade audience to judge the final Super Golds for a third time and choose the World Champion 2014.

What's happening at this year's show

BBC Good Food LondonWe continue to partner with the powerful consumer platform that is BBC Good Food Show but we are moving to London.

Held at Olympia it promises to be the UK’s biggest and most cosmopolitan cheese festival, with almost 30,000 consumers tasting cheese after the international panel of experts have completed their judging.

Additionally, available in the World Cheese area:

  • Improved graphics within the area will explain the judging process, list past winners and educate the public with cheese facts
  • Plasma screens will explain the judging process and the importance of taking gold in the awards and will include our sponsors logos
  • We will be hosting educational tours, tasting sponsors’ cheeses and helping consumers to understand more about the judging process
