The American Cheese Society held its annual cheese contest earlier this month in Richmond, Virginia. From fresh butter to flavored cheeses, winners of this competition represent the best of the best in dairy. Companies showcase their most delicious cheeses which are required to be in market a minimum of six months prior to the competition. Arena Cheese Inc. brought some of its chief competitors and went home with first and second place awards for two cheese varieties.
Arena’s Spring Green™ brand proved itself a bonafide champion with its cheeses Colby/Jack and Buffalo Wing flavored Cheddar curds. The company’s first Master Cheese Maker awarded first place for Colby/Jack, Bill Hanson, announced the cheesy triumph this morning, reminding us all that this is Arena’s third year taking home the gold medal in the cheese curd category.
Over 1700 products were entered in the competition, represented by 257 companies. Arena Cheese stated in a press release that it’s extremely proud to be amongst other companies promoting artisan, farmstead, and specialty cheeses.
Other Arena Cheese products under the Spring Green brand include authentic Colby and Pimento Colby, Gouda, Smoked Gouda, and Sriracha Jack. ANUK extends our congratulations on Arena’s epic wins this year.
