Maple Dale Cheese, won the medium cheddar (aged four to nine months) category at the 8th Canadian Cheese Grand Prix in April, 2013. This national competition showcases the best cheeses made from Canadian cow's milk.

The winners for this cheese competition were selected from a record 225 cheese entries submitted by cheese makers from Prince Edward Island to British Columbia. The submissions were then narrowed down to 58 finalists by the jury in February.

Judges noted the following about Maple Dale's entry: "...Maple Dale was purchased in 1987 and is now family-run, specializing in cheddar and especially known for their aged cheddars. Natural aging develops the rich texture and mature cheddar taste with a spectrum of nutty, salty and slightly fruity flavours."

Maple Dale's One Year-Old Cheddar and 10 Year-Old Cheddar also achieved finalist status!
