Ambition presents itself in many different ways. A clear representation of Emmi Roth’s determination comes in the form of 10 new accolades collected at the 2021 World Cheese Awards. Spotlighting nine of its Wisconsin-made and Swiss-imported Emmi cheeses, the Emmi USA brand ushers in a new era of distinction with these awards.
“The competition was especially tough this year, and we are honored to have our cheeses celebrated on an international stage,” said Tim Omer, President and Managing Director. “We are lucky to work with some of the hardest working, talented cheesemakers in the business. With their help, we’ve been able to make products that are loved across the world.”
Emmi’s cave-aged KALTBACH™ Le Cr Crémeux won a Gold medal, while Emmi Tête de Moine AOP took home a Silver medal. The brand’s cave-aged Emmi KALTBACH Gouda and Emmi KALTBACH Le Gruyère AOP both won Bronze medals, as outlined in a press release.
The company’s Roth® brand of Wisconsin-made cheeses received several accolades as well, including Silver medals for Roth Grand Cru® Reserve and Roth Gorgonzola. Emmi also received Bronze medals for its Roth Grand Cru, Roth Aged Gouda, and Roth Buttermilk Blue® cheeses.
Furthermore, the company’s flagship line of washed-rind Alpine-style cheeses includes Roth Grand Cru Surchoix, which won the coveted World Champion title at the 2016 World Cheese Championship. Emmi- and Roth®-branded cheeses are available at grocery retailers and specialty cheese shops across the country.
The World Cheese Awards are dedicated only to cheese, with no other dairy products able to enter, bringing the global cheese community together for nearly three decades in a celebration of tradition, innovation, and excellence in cheese. This year, around 4,079 cheeses were presented from 40 countries and were judged by over 250 of the top cheese experts worldwide, including cheesemakers, technical experts, buyers, retailers, and food writers.
