Bothwell’s Monterey Jack and Mild Cheddar Win 1st Place

Belleville, Ontario (November 3, 2016) – Manitoba’s Bothwell Cheese took top spots with their
Monterey Jack and Mild Cheddar cheese last week at the 89th Annual British Empire Cheese
Show. The company also took second place with its Muenster and third place with its Parmesan.

“2016 marks the 80th anniversary of our company and I’m proud to say that Bothwell is still a
cheese that stands out in the industry,” says Bothwell Cheese President Kevin Thomson. “I’m
personally quite pleased with our outcome at this show and that our attention to quality does not
go unnoticed by our peers.”

“This year’s British Empire Cheese Show was exceptionally tough with many new entries in the
speciality class,” says Bothwell Cheese Production Manager Nathan Dueck. “Despite the strong
competition, we placed well in the specialty categories and took home two first place spots. Our
team should be very proud of these accomplishments.”

    In the past Bothwell Cheese donated small packaged cheese for the Steinbach Bible College different events. Do you still manufacture small packaged cheese?

    I understand Bothwell Cheese no longer supports local charities within its community with donations however I am looking to acquire around 200 of these packages. What would the cost be or is there a package deal?
    thank you
