Makers of Cornish Yarg receive The King’s Award for Enterprise in Sustainable Development

Lynher Dairies, makers of the iconic Cornish Yarg cheese and the World Champion cheese Cornish Kern, has received The King’s Award for Enterprise for outstanding achievement in Sustainable Development.

Recommended by the Prime Minister and approved by His Majesty The King, the dairy in Cornwall has been chosen as a shining example of a proactive and resilient rural business living in the 21st century.

Owner Catherine Mead said the whole dairy team was honoured to be given the most prestigious business award in the UK.

“We are continuously managing our social and environmental impact as a business, and The Kings Award process has held us accountable, requiring us to scrutinise and evidence our sustainability efforts to the nth degree,” said Catherine.

“The importance of adopting this approach early is great. It means we have been able to make proactive, calculated decisions rather than reactive responses to regulatory changes and customer habits.”

“Encouraging us to continuously improve, we are already working on a plan that will transform how we look at energy as a business, further extending our green credentials but also our financial resilience.”

Catherine added that with Cornish food already carrying recognition nationally and internationally for its quality and provenance, receiving The King’s Award for Enterprise will further expand that reputation laterally, ensuring sustainability becomes a key pillar for Cornish businesses across the board.
