Ludlow Food Centre is on winning form at the moment, gaining recognition for its cheeses and sweet products. The dairy team at the Bromfield-based centre has triumphed, winning four medals at this year’s 2017 British Cheese Awards; there was gold for Bringewood (gold), silver for Bromfield Priory Creamy and Cultured Butter, and bronze for blue cheese Remembered Hills. Dairy manager Dudley Martin said, “I’m so proud of what our team has achieved. The competition was fierce and to gain four medals is a fantastic achievement.”
Meanwhile, three handmade products impressed the tasting panel at the Great British Food Awards and reached the shortlist before the final celebrity food judges’ taste test. The products that progressed were Dry Cured Back Bacon, Mince Pies, and Blood Orange and Gin Marmalade, which was entered into the hard-fought Best Sweet Preserve/Sauce category.
