Cotteswold Dairy Win Dairy Provider of the Year at the Food Award Wales Annual Event

The awards are nominated by members of the Welsh public to recognise the hard work and efforts of the Welsh food industry. Accolades include restaurants, takeaways, gastro pubs, hotel restaurants, cafes and bistros, as well as shine the spotlight on the wonderful local producers who supply their delicious ingredients.

Cotteswold Dairy was shortlisted in the ‘Dairy Food Provider of the Year’ category.  There were 7 in the category altogether with Cotteswold dairy: Caws Cenarth Cheese, Snowdonia Cheese, Daffodil Foods, Castle dairies, The Village Dairy and PantMawr Farmhouse Cheeses. 

All were very worthy finalists and George Workman MD of Cotteswold Dairy was delighted that Cotteswold dairy was announced the overall winner of the ‘Dairy Food Provider of the Year’ category and remarked ‘We were thrilled even to be shortlisted in this category and to win was just fantastic.  This is a real credit to our welsh farmers who supply us with top quality milk and all our staff for helping produce our products and provide a great delivery service all over Wales. Our Dragon brand of milk and Cream are widely recognised and extremely popular throughout Wales. We would also like to thank all our very loyal Customers’.

Andy Ward, depot manager of North Wales and Gwyn Roberts, Sales Manager for Wales, were both immensely proud to win and collect the award on stage with George. 

‘I would like to say that the award, which hopefully will be the first of many is the recognition for a lot of hard work and commitment by the whole North Wales team.’ commented Andy Ward.

The black tie ceremony was hosted by Capital 1’s breakfast presenter, Polly James and took place at the Mercure Holland House Hotel, Cardiff on April 18.

Irfan Younis of event organisers Creative Oceanic commented “The tremendous amount of nominations received from the Welsh public, is a testament to the hard work of all those working within the food sector.’’

Serving the very best in food hospitality, the evening was entertaining for all and a big event in the Welsh food calendar.
