Harmonie butter won second prize in the organic products category at the international cheese exhibition in Nantwich in the UK in late July.

This new category, which attracted a wide range of dairy products, was won by a UK-produced Wyke cheddar. The third prize went to a French organic goats cheese.

A total of 1,760 cheeses from 19 producers participated in the competition. The show's overall winner was the British "Double Gloucester" from Avonmore-Waterford, now Glanbia.

As well as Harmonie, MD Foods was represented by an organic cream cheese.
