Leading British dairy brand Lancashire Farm Dairies has once again topped the bill at this year’s summer shows with nine awards, and two very high commendations in the dairy category.
The Rochdale based dairy company, which is one of the UK’s fastest growing grocery brands, picked up six awards at this summer’s Great Yorkshire Show, adding another three at the recent International Cheese Awards at Nantwich.
Following the company’s recent figures which revealed that sales have risen 20% since the free range products hit shelves earlier this year, it is no surprise that the runaway success of Lancashire Farm’s award season has been its yogurts. They picked up a total of four awards over the two shows including one high commendation at the International Cheese Awards at Nantwich.
Other products that performed well include products under sister brand Pakeeza, with Coconut & Vanilla Chai taking gold at Yorkshire and Masala Chai picking up a silver at Nantwich. Both shows saw entries from small producers, international brands and major retailers competing for the same awards.
Commenting on the recent award wins, Azhar Zouq, managing director at Lancashire Farm Dairies, said: “We are pleased that once again the quality of our products has been recognised in some of the most prestigious awards in the dairy category’s calendar.
“The summer’s country shows offer tough competition from some major brands as well as small independent companies so to be taking home nine awards this year really demonstrates the quality and growth of our brand.”
In addition to yogurt and lassi products, Lancashire Farm also won awards for its cream products demonstrating the breadth of its product base.
Priced at between £1.00 and £2.50 for pack sizes that range from 85g to 1kg Lancashire Farm’s range is available in all major retailers across the country.
