Mifroma Switzerland Swiss Receives Best of Class at 2018 World Championship Cheese Contest


ELIZABETH, NJ
Friday, March 23rd, 2018

Mifroma is adding accolades to its already impressive list of achievements this month; the importer’s Mifroma Switzerland Swiss Cheese, produced exclusively by Käserei Neuenschwander AG, took home Best of Class honors at the 2018 World Championship Cheese Contest in Madison, Wisconsin, earlier this month—scoring an impressive 98.25 out of 100 in the Rindless Swiss Style category.

Thomas Gellert, President, Atalanta“This single-source Swiss Cheese is a product that we are proud to stand behind. Mifroma brings the best of Switzerland to the US market, and Switzerland Swiss Cheese is a perfect example of that,” said Thomas Gellert, President of Atalanta, Mifroma’s distribution partner, in a press release.

According to that press release, the Käserei Neuenschwander cheese dairy has a history that dates back more than 150 years. The family-run company, managed by second and third generation cheesemakers Ernst, Thomas, and Marc Neuenschwander, has its roots in the authentic tradition of cheese production. The company couples that legacy with a focus on innovation—offering, as its guiding philosophy, the motto “tradition meets innovation.”

Available in retail and bulk forms, Mifroma Switzerland Swiss Cheese is crafted with pasteurized part skim milk from cows fed only with grass and hay. The RBST- and hormone-free cheese is mild and creamy—ideal for cooking, shredding, slicing, or serving by itself as a healthy protein-rich snack.

Started in 1957, The World Championship Cheese Contest claims to be the largest technical cheese, butter, and yogurt competition in the world. The 2018 Contest was held March 6-8—during which time, a team of 56 internationally renowned judges technically evaluated a record-setting 3,402 cheese entries from 26 countries and 32 states.
