British Cheese Awards

Cheese awards

Best Packaging Award

The British Cheese Awards celebrate the best of Britain’s fantastic cheese producers. Several companies that are supplied by Atlas Packaging won awards at the event held within the Royal Bath and West show. Those to win included Ashley Chase with their Cave Aged cheese packaging and Atlas MD Jason Sharman is pictured on the left handing over the award to a representative from the winning cheese producer. Jason said:

“As a long standing supporter of the British Cheese Awards we were once again proud to be a part of championing the great British cheese industry. We like to sponsor the Best Packaging Award because that’s our industry. My look of  delight in the photo was because it was our customer who won for a box that we made at our Devon manufacturing base. Congratulations to Ashley Chase and their Cave Aged Cheddar, a worthy winner. We’re also celebrating as this means we have produced the best packaged cheese in Britain!”

The Cave Aged Cheddar box is a Flexo printed crash lock box with an eye catching design on the outside. They also won silver awards for three other packaging boxes also made by Atlas Packaging.

Display Stand

As well as being a sponsor of the British Cheese Awards, Atlas Packaging also answered a request from event organisers to create a display stand for the winners of each category. We pride ourselves on creating innovative products and solutions out of corrugated cardboard and our design team came up with the answer. We created a self supporting stand with an attractive wood style printed effect. It provided a flat raised surface to showcase the winning cheese with space for the rosette and certificate. As well as having a structural benefit our team were able to use the upstand to highlight our success at the prestigious EFIA awards last year where we won gold for our printing.

Other winners

Ashley Chase Estates weren’t the only winning cheese producers who get their packaging from Atlas Packaging. Barbers Farmhouse Cheesemakers were also successful in a number of categories for their range of Cheddar, Red Leicester and Double Gloucester.

Quicke’s Traditional won for their cheddar and also for their modern style of cheese including a bronze award for their Elderflower Cheese and a silver for their goat’s cheese. The picture on the right shows their decorated gift box produced by Atlas Packaging containing a range of their products.

Ashley Chase Estates also picked up awards for their range of cheeses. They were all worthy winners according to Liam Beades, Atlas Packaging’s Cheese Packaging specialist:

“These awards for our customers show what fantastic cheese they’re all producing. The West Country is a real heartland of the dairy industry and the skill that these producers have passed down the generations goes to show why they are champions at what they do. For us at Atlas Packaging it’s about our understanding of this industry and how best to store and transport the product in the most appropriate corrugated cardboard box that has led to a great relationship with these and many other cheese producers.”

Atlas Packaging produces a range of corrugated cardboard boxes that are specific to the cheese industry. We can supply shelf ready packaging where the top of the box can easily be detached with perforation lines to make it quick and easy to fit on the shelves of the supermarket. This is a win win as the stores don’t have to unpack the product and the eye catching branding on the box remains there to be seen. We also produce fully enclosed, transit and gift boxes which are proving increasingly popular for e-commerce and mail order. Our boxes are designed for cheese and have breathable air holes as well as other features.
