Prince Ed­ward Is­land-based Cows Cream­ery is bring­ing home eight awards in­clud­ing Re­serve Cham­pion Ched­dar from the an­nual Royal Agri­cul­tural Win­ter Fair in Toronto.

The Royal Agri­cul­tural Win­ter Fair takes place each Novem­ber at Ex­hi­bi­tion Place in Toronto and wel­comes more than 300,000 guests.

The Fair is the world’s largest com­bined in­door agri­cul­tural and eques­trian show, and show­cases Canada’s lead­ers in agri­cul­tural, food, and equine ex­cel­lence. Cows’ Avon­lea Cloth­bound Ched­dar won three sep­a­rate awards - Re­serve Cham­pion Ched­dar, Sil­ver Trier Award for the High­est Ag­gre­gate, and Best Aged Ched­dar.

“It is an hon­our to have re­ceived eight awards.” Said Cows’ cheese­maker Ar­mand Bernard. “There are so many ex­cel­lent pro­duc­ers across the coun­try, we’re in­cred­i­bly hon­oured to be rec­og­nized.”

All Cows Cream­ery’s ched­dars and but­ters are made with milk from dairy farms across Prince Ed­ward Is­land.

“Prince Ed­ward Is­land milk is a very im­por­tant in­gre­di­ent in all of our dairy prod­ucts,” said Bernard. “We know that P.E.I. milk is al­ways very high qual­ity and we feel it gives us an edge over our com­pe­ti­tion.”

The com­pany pro­duces six ched­dar cheeses and three types of but­ters and is based in Char­lot­te­town.

Known for its ice cream, Cows Cream­ery started pro­duc­ing cheese and but­ter 12 years ago and has re­ceived much recog­ni­tion since that time.
