Laura Chenel is gaining valuable recognition for its impressive portfolio of cheeses, as the supplier recently took home a new product award in the Cheese—Non-Cow Milk, Mixed Milk category as part of the Specialty Food Association’s (SFA) 2022 sofi™ Awards, honored for its innovative and flavorful Everything Bagel Fresh Goat Cheese.

Laure Chatard, Chief Executive Officer, Laura Chenel“We at Laura Chenel are very proud that Everything Bagel Fresh Goat Cheese has been honored with the New Product sofi Award,” says Chief Executive Officer Laure Chatard. “To be distinguished by the specialty food industry for our newest flavor further validates our commitment to innovation, top-quality products, and creative flavors.

Laura Chenel’s Everything Bagel Fresh Goat Cheese is a unique pairing of America’s original goat cheese with a popular blend of sesame and poppy seeds, garlic, and onion.

This coveted accolade represents the cheesemaker’s commitment to innovation and crafting some of the highest-quality goat cheeses in the United States.
