Adeje’s Premio Abinque 2017: the annual woman of the year award goes to internationally recognized Tijoco dairy owner

Adeje’s Abinque prize has been awarded since 2004 by the Asociación San Juan to recognize women who stand out for their contribution to the life of Adeje municipality. Winners over the last few years have included Walk for Life founder Brigitte Gypen and young world bodyboard champion Alexandra Rinder.

Each award is presentented at a gala dinner, and this year’s award will be handed over tomorrow evening at a ceremony in the CDTCA (tourism development centre) in El Galeón. The recipient is Ángeles Nieves García Rodríguez, cheesemaker and co-owner of the Tijoco-based dairy Montesdeoca.

Montesdeoca has won several major awards, not just at a Tenerife level but also internationally – it has won at the World Cheese Awards, the only dairy from the island to win (see HERE and HERE).
