The World Cheese Awards 2017 will take place this November at London’s Tobacco Dock as part of a collaboration with Taste of London: Festive Edition.

Some 3,000 cheeses from all corners of the globe will be judged in front of a trade audience on Friday 17th November 2017, with consumer tastings being held across the weekend.

John Farrand, managing director of the Guild of Fine Food, organisers of the World Cheese Awards said; “Taste of London has a proven track record engaging with high profile restaurants and chefs, which makes it a great environment for our dairy audience and ideal for forging relationships within food service. Tobacco Dock is a magnificent venue full of character, making it the perfect backdrop to this year’s cheese judging.”

Following last year’s World Cheese Awards, which were held in San Sebastian, Farrand said he hopes to alternate the event between overseas venues and London each year.
