Montchevre scooped up seven awards at the 2017 U.S. Championship Cheese Contest®–on one of the largest cheese contests in the nation.

Arnaud Solandt, Co-Founder, Montchevre

“We couldn’t be prouder to bring home seven awards, including five Best of Class awards, at this year’s U.S. Championship Cheese Contest,” said Co-Founder Arnaud Solandt. “These accolades are a true testament to our craft and the quality of our product thanks to the fresh milk supply of Montchevre’s network of more than 350 local family farms.”

This year’s event was its biggest yet, breaking records with 2,303 entries of cheeses, butters, and yogurts from 33 U.S. states. And amongst them, Montchevre received the following honors:

Class: Flavored Soft Goat’s Milk Cheeses

  • Best of Class, Truffle Fresh Goat Cheese Log
  • Second, Four Pepper Fresh Goat Cheese Log

Class: Flavored Soft Goat’s Milk Cheese with Sweet Condiments

  • Best of Class, Blueberry Vanilla Fresh Goat Cheese Log

  • Best of Class, Crumbled Goat Cheese

Class: Flavored Semi-Soft Goat’s Milk Cheeses

  • Best of Class, Apricot & Sage Crumbled Goat Cheese
  • Third, Candied Cranberry Crumbled Goat Cheese

  • Best of Class, Trivium (in partnership with Crown Finish Caves and Creamery 333)

Offering an extensive product line of award-winning fresh goat cheeses, aged specialty goat cheeses, and seasonally inspired flavored goat cheeses, Montchevre said in a press release that its products are available at independent grocers and major retailers across the U.S. Retailers include Bristol Farms, Gelson’s, H-E-B, Ingles Markets, Publix, Safeway, Sam’s Club, Schnucks, Smart & Final, Stop & Shop, Target, Walmart, and Whole Foods.

As we reported previously, the company recently made strides to further its commitment to becoming entirely non-GMO. Its unique NSF Non-GMO True North Certified 4 oz Fresh Goat Cheese Logs, launched in June of last year, are available nationwide.

Congratulations to the Montchevre team on these recent wins!
