The Guild of Fine Food’s annual awards is an accreditation scheme which recognises and promotes excellence in independent retail.

Among the 42 independent retail outlets on its 2018 shortlist, Aldeburgh-based Slate is in the running for Best Specialist Cheese Shop in the UK.

Slate, which only opened last year, has already had a written entry reviewed by a panel of industry experts. It will now undergo two further rounds of judging this summer, an announced visit from one of the judges and a visit by a mystery shopper.

Altogether, nine cheese shops have been shortlisted. The panel of judges will rate, score and give feedback on every aspect of the shops before agreeing on a category winner.
