South West Cheesemaker kicks up a stink over vanishing prize-winning cheddar

A British cheesemaker has offered a 500 pound  reward for the recovery of 40 kilograms of prize-winning cheddar stolen from an agricultural show in south-west England.

The award-winning cheddar and the reserve champion, each weighing 20 kilograms, were allegedly stolen on Saturday after being left in a marquee in Yeovil, not far from the village of Cheddar, after which the world-renowned cheese is named.

The two blocks disappeared along with the certificates that prove their prize-winning quality which could raise their value.

“Such a quantity of prize-winning cheese would retail (at) between five hundred to six hundred pounds. But with their certificates, they could be worth thousands,” Rich Clothier, the managing director at Wyke Farms, told Reuters.
