Buyer's guide

Cheddar comes in a wide variety of styles, from young and fresh to mature and crumbly. Cheeses labelled as West Country Cheddar must be made from cows reared in Cornwall, Devon, Dorset or Somerset using traditional methods. They must contain no colourings, flavourings of preservatives, and must have been matured on the farm where they were made for at least nine months.
