BelGioioso Cheese has struck gold with its signature Italian-style cheese offerings; the company took home nine medals at the recent American Cheese Society’s Conference and Contest—winning gold for its Parmesan and Crema di Mascarpone™.
“Our Parmesan and Mascarpone were awarded best in the world at the World Championship Cheese Contest in March and now again in the blind judging at ACS," said Errico Auricchio, President, in a press release. “It’s quite an honor for our Cheesemakers who passionately hand-craft these world class cheeses each day.”
BelGioioso competed in a field of 1,954 entries—judged by industry experts in a blind taste test. The company’s award-winning items include:
“BelGioioso’s Parmesan and American Grana cheeses were both judged in the same Italian Style Grating Types category and we were thrilled to receive the 1st place Gold Medal for Parmesan and the 2nd place Silver Medal for American Grana,” noted Gaetano Auricchio, Executive Vice President. “You can taste our Cheesemaker’s passion for quality in these cheeses and the medals affirm this. Our dedicated group of Cheesemakers were some of the most awarded in the contest.”
Congratulations, BelGioioso Cheese, from all of us at Deli Market News!
