We've got cheese on the brain here at Deli Market News, as one producer recently made an exciting announcement. Champignon North America revealed that at the recent International Cheese & Dairy Awards (ICDA), several of its cheeses were honored.

"We are proud of the cheeses we import for their consistent high quality," Flynne Wiley, Chief Executive Officer, notes. "The recognition by ICDA judges is a reflection of our master cheese makers' commitment to craftsmanship, and product excellence, and we look forward to the innovations to come."

At the event, thousands of entries were submitted and judged on Thursday, June 29 at the Staffordshire County Showground in the United Kingdom. The cheeses from Käserei Champignon impressed the world's leading experts in several categories, a press release stated.

Champignon Mushroom, a double cream soft-ripened cheese with flecks of champignon mushrooms and one of my personal favorites for a cheese board, took home a gold in Soft, Semi-Soft, or Cream Cheese with Additives. Briette Dulce de Leche was awarded a gold in Cheese - Any Variety that contains Sweet Additives and Briette Smoky was recognized with a Silver in the Smoked Flavor class for Semi-soft/Soft cheeses.

Grand Noir was also honored with a gold as Best German Cheese, along with Montagnolo (known as Cambozola Black Label in the United States) and Rougette Bavarian Red, which took home both the Silver and Bronze in the same category.

Congratulations to Champignon on these impressive wins!
