We aim to promote your cheese to the general public, if you enclose small literature with your entries with the relevant entry number(s) clearly marked on the literature, we will do our utmost to place the literature adjacent to the cheese after the judging has been completed.


Exhibit labels containing class and exhibit numbers will be forwarded to each competitor. The correct label must be attached to each individual entry and must be clearly visible. The right is reserved for the committee to remove or cover any mark or name indicating who the manufacturer might be, this may extend to removing the exhibit from competition except in classes which specifically permit branded packaging.


Please ensure your exhibits are adequately packaged to prevent transit damage. It may not be possible to display and judge a damaged cheese.

All exhibits to be staged and delivered to West Woodlands Showground, Bunns Lane, Frome, BA11 5ES between 1.00pm and 5.00pm on Wednesday 11th September 2024. If exhibits need to be delivered outside these times contact 01373 463600 to arrange a prior appointment.

Exhibits can also be delivered to Peter Green Chilled Leighton Lane, Evercreech, Nr Shepton Mallet, Somerset, BA4 6LQ on Monday 9th September or Tuesday 10th September 2024 and the show will stage the exhibits for you. Each outer carton must be marked with the following: Global Cheese Awards, Frome. The small white label supplied by the show stating the class number and exhibit number must be visibly attached to each cheese.

The position where each lot is to occupy will be pointed out to exhibitors by members of the committee.

Late deliveries or deliveries with missing labels may not be displayed.


There will be a Gold, Silver & Bronze awarded to each class and the winners of the classes will then compete against other winners within the same category. From this a Best in Category will be awarded and then all the Best in Categories will compete to win the Global Champion and the UK Supreme Champion, the latter of which is only available to our UK entries. In addition, there will be an award for the Best Traditional Cheddar, the Best Artisan Cheese and the Best Plant-Based Alternative.
