SuperGold

Around 3,000 cheeses made their way from six continent and were judged by over 260 of the finest palates and noses from every corner of the globe, including cheesemakers, technical experts, buyers, retailers and food writers. Judges work in teams of four, identifying any cheeses worthy of a bronze, silver or gold award. They are looking at the rind and the body of the cheese, its colour, texture, consistency and, above all, its taste. 

Each team then nominates one exceptional cheese as the Super Gold from their table. These 60 cheeses are the best in the world and are judged a second time by the Super Jury of 16 internationally recognised experts, who will each select a cheese to champion in the final round of judging.

The Super Jury then debates the final 16 in front of a live consumer and trade audience, before choosing the World Champion Cheese live on WCA TV, with cheese lovers across the globe tuning in for the drama.
