L’Ancêtre has been honored with 23 awards for 10 products in under two months at three major Canadian and international competitions. Among the L’Ancêtre products recognized for their unique flavors were several cheddars, butters, a parmesan, and an Emmental. L’Ancêtre’s old organic cheddar cheese was a big winner, racking up two gold medals at the Global Cheese Awards in England and taking first place in the Mature Cheddar category at the British Empire Cheese Show in Ontario last week. The cheese factory’s salted butter also rose to stardom, taking home first place in its category at both the Royal Agricultural Winter Fair in Toronto and the British Empire Cheese show, along with a gold medal at the Global Cheese Awards. To top it all off, L’Ancêtre was also named a Grand Champion in the Cheddar, Small Plant and Cheddar, All Entrants categories at the British Empire Cheese Show.
