Top honour for Leyland cheese veteran
8:00am Sunday 18th August 2013 in News
A Leyland man has been recognised for his outstanding contribution to the cheese industry.
The British Cheese Board awarded the Nantwich Show Cheese Industry Award to Terry Hudson, an industry veteran of 41 years and regular on the show judging circuit.
Now in its sixth year, the award recognises an individual who has made an outstanding contribution to the cheese industry in the areas of cheesemaking, grading or quality control.
Terry has been in the cheese world since 1972 when he joined Dairy Crest as part of its technical team involved in all aspects of technical support, product development, export development and grading. He transferred to First Milk on their purchase of Dairy Crest’s own label cheese businesses in 2007. He is now in semi retirement having left First Milk in April after 41 years in the industry.
Mr Hudson said it was an honour to be recognised, adding: “Having spent so much time awarding accolades to other people and their cheeses, it’s nice to be on the receiving end.”
Philip Ponsford, who awarded the prize for the British Cheese Board said: “Terry has made a significant contribution to the British cheese industry over the past 40 years, something which we are delighted to recognise with this award.”
