International Cheese Awards Press Release January 2016: Full Steam Ahead for ICA2016!

So, it’s 2016 already and time for us to start looking ahead to this year’s International Cheese Awards. This year’s show, held in Nantwich on July 26th (Judging and Trade) and 27th (Show Day), will be the 119th – and we want to make it the best yet. Last year’s show broke all records with an amazing 4615 entries from 31 different countries, and we’re already hard at work making ICA2016 even bigger and better. Read on to find out how you can get involved…

Book your Trade Space Now

Trade forms for the 2016 show are now available on our website at  – simply download and complete to reserve your space in Nantwich next July. Last year’s show saw a record number of trade stands – it’s a great way to connect with other figures in the dairy industry and to introduce your products to thousands of discerning cheese lovers, so don’t hang about. At ICA2015 Daylesford Organic received the award for Champion Trade Stand from David Kellett, the sponsor of the 2015 Trade Stand Competition – could it be you this year?

We have a growing team of loyal sponsors, whose details appear on our website and without whom the show literally would not go on. If you’d like to get involved with sponsorship, please let us know! We had a number of new companies come on board with us last year so get in touch with us (contact details below) to find out more about sponsoring an award or getting involved in some other way.

Keep your Eyes Peeled for Ticket Info

As always, tickets will be available from the Nantwich Show website, and one ticket will cover admission to both the biggest cheese awards in the world and the largest one-day agricultural show in the UK – bargain! We’ll be the first to let you know when tickets go on sale – and with a discounted price for buying in advance, it’s worth being an early bird!
