Dominque Huth, Chief Executive Officer, Savencia North America“It’s our mission to produce world-class cheeses,” said Dominique Huth, CEO of Savencia North America, following the cheesemaker's win. “Savencia Cheese USA’s multiple wins at the 2020 World Championship Cheese Contest solidifies our superiority when it comes to complex and diverse fine cheeses.”
