The Big Cheese Making Kit has been named New Start Business of the Year at the fifth annual WeDO Scotland awards at the Sheraton Hotel in Edinburgh.
The award recognises the achievements of company founder and entrepreneur Ailsa Proverbs, from Tranent ,in successfully developing and marketing a range of cheese making products aimed at the burgeoning gastro gift market.
The Big Cheese Making Kit was launched in 2012 to sell kits containing everything needed to make cheese at home in around an hour.
Sales took off immediately thanks to a social media frenzy and the products quickly caught the attention of major retailers including Harrods and Selfridge’s.
