Ros Windsor who has been managing director at Paxton & Whitfield since 2002, has decided to take a step back from the day-to-day business.

Rutter said: “I am honoured to continue Ros’ incredible legacy and to lead Paxton & Whitfield through its next period of history. The business will remain focused on delivering an exceptional customer experience and retailing the finest quality artisan cheese.’’

Windsor said: “There have been so many highlights. I have loved spending time with producers who care so much about their product; it’s a responsibility to ensure this care and enthusiasm is communicated to the end consumer.”
