Bristol cheese business scoops prize at Great British Cheese Awards

The Bristol Cheesemonger has won the Best Retailer award at the Great British Cheese Awards.

The Great British Cheese awards celebrate the best of British cheese produced and distributed by independent cheese makers and retailers.

Rosie Morgan, who founded The Bristol Cheesmonger, said: "It’s a bit of a shock as I didn’t expect to win, and I was already incredibly honoured just to make it to the final.

"I suppose I might’ve won because I do everything on my own, have a huge amount of love for what I do and am part of a younger generation of cheesemongers. Everyone else in the category are such wonderful retailers, and we all champion local cheeses – it’s certainly a passion."

Ollie Lloyd, chief executive and founder of food website Great British Chefs which helped organise the awards, said: “We launched The Great British Cheese Awards last year with the objective of producing a catalogue of great artisan cheese and to also discover up-and-coming cheesemakers.

“The response we have received again this year was way above expectation and we are grateful to the remarkable support from producers, retailers and especially the general public.

“We are confident to continue our quest to create a platform for cheese producers and retailers to showcase the very best of the artisan cheese industry.”

The winners were announced at a ceremony held in London.
