Ian Coggin Bio
So yes I am now sales manager at Belton Farm Cheese. Belton is owned and managed by the Beckett family we make cheese on a 600 acre organic farm at Whitchurch Shropshire in the UK. Belton are known as a maker of British territorial cheeses. These include Cheshire , Lancashire, Wensleydale, Red Leicester and Caerphilly .
We have recently introduced Red Fox which is matured for a year and a half and has a wonderful complexity of sweet and savoury flavours and a hidden crunch. Red Fox takes the name from our red fox weather vane on the barn.
Previously I was the Cheese Guy at Dewlay Cheesemakers. I was in this role for over 25 years; meeting customers and making friends. I have many customers that have bought Dewlay Lancashire cheese for twenty or more years and a few that have had the habit even longer.
My thanks to everyone participating in my 2015 Virtual Q&A with Cheese Professionals. I hope all of you, my loyal readers, are enjoying this as much as I am…
Interviews will continue throughout 2015… sometimes, they will be “stand-alone” and sometimes they will be presented as round-table discussions with several Cheese Professionals answering the same question. Those participating includeCheesemakers, ACS CCPs™, Cheesemongers and Cheese Professionals and Experts who contribute to this Wonderful World we call “Cheese”.
