Schuman Cheese has a few new accolades to add to its team’s achievements, coming home from the World Championship Cheese Contest with seven new medals.
Among its victories, the company’s flagship brand, Cello, earned “Best in Class” honors in the Aged Asiago category, as well as medals in other categories, according to a press release.
“Earning another Best in Class award for our flagship Cello brand is a real testament to the high quality standards and dedication that our expert team put into making our exceptional cheeses,” said Executive Vice President of Sales, Marketing, and Customer Service Jim Low. “This year’s competition was the biggest yet, so it’s even more gratifying to know that our Cello and Yellow Door Creamery brands continue to rank among the world’s most celebrated cheeses.”
As we reported previously, the contest saw a record-breaking 3,402 entries spanning the globe. In addition to Cello’s success, Schuman’s Yellow Door Creamery picked up a silver medal for Tuscan Hand-Rubbed Fontina with recognition in several other categories.

All winning entries were made at Schuman’s Lake Country Dairy, which opened in 2006. The company credits rich pastures, pure, fresh water, and the careful husbandry of a select group of family farmers, for some of the best milk from Wisconsin’s dairyland going into every wheel. Schuman Cheese opened in 1945 with a singular passion: to make great specialty cheeses.
Congratulations to the Schuman team on these honors!
