30th July 2015

Earlier this week at the International Cheese Awards in Nantwich, the 485th Induction Chapter of La Guilde Internationale des Fromagers took place.

Peter Walker was inducted as Garde et Juré (Guard and Judge) de la Guilde Internationale des Fromagers, along with other colleagues from the industry, as pictured below.

La Guilde Internationale des Fromagers, founded in 1969, promotes the work of those in the dairy industry (including cheese-makers, dairy farmers, processors and retailers), while maintaining a link with the traditions of cheese making which have led us to where we are today. Peter joins a network of over 6000 members, spanning Europe and more than 35 countries across the world.

Of this accolade, he says, "La Guilde is enormously respected throughout the industry, and I am honoured to have been selected to join their members. It celebrates the role that both myself and Tom Walker & Sons play within the industry, and we too will continue to do our part to maintain the rich heritage of cheese production."
