The lead judges had this to say of the competition:

John Allison from the United Kingdom: "The Gold Medal winners were of an extremely high standard and would have ranked as such anywhere in the world.  I was amazed by the variety of cheeses made from Jersey milk.  The diligence and skill of the panel of judges made it an enjoyable and worthwhile competition."

Kathy Guidi from Canada: "It was wonderful to see such an array of high quality hand crafted cheeses from around the world made exclusively from Jersey milk."

In 2008 the World Jersey Cattle Bureau launched the world’s first produce awards dedicated to a single breed of livestock - The World Jersey Cheese Awards. The concept was simple: demonstrate the quality and diversity of cheeses made from 100% Jersey milk to reinforce in the mind of consumers that when it comes to quality, look for ’Jersey’ as a mark of the very best.
