How the competition works

Now in its 30th year, the World Cheese Awards is the largest international cheese competition on the planet. Dedicated only to cheese, with no other dairy products able to enter, the awards have been bringing the global cheese community together for nearly three decades, in a celebration of tradition, innovation and excellence in cheese.

In 2017, the World Cheese Awards took place at Tobacco Dock, London, taking centre stage at the Taste of London: Festive Edition. Around 3,000 cheeses made their way from six continents and were judged by over 230 of the finest palates and noses from every corner of the globe, including cheesemakers, technical experts, buyers, retailers and food writers.

Judges work in teams of three or four, identifying any cheeses worthy of a bronze, silver or gold award. They are looking at the rind and the body of the cheese, its colour, texture, consistency and, above all, its taste.

Each team then nominates one exceptional cheese as the Super Gold from their table. These 66 cheeses are the best in the world and are judged a second time by the Super Jury of 16 internationally recognised experts, who will each select a cheese to champion in the final round of judging.

The Super Jury then debates the final 16 in front of a live consumer and trade audience, before choosing the World Champion Cheese live on WCA TV, with cheese lovers across the globe tuning in for the drama.
