Emmi Roth USA has supported the Fifth Annual Wisconsin Cheese Originals Festival as a marquee sponsor for the second year in a row. Themed “The Arrival of American Artisan Cheese,” the festival offers attendees the opportunity to meet more than 40 artisan cheesemakers during two days of tours, seminars, dinners, and the popular Meet the Cheesemaker Gala, according to a press release.
During the festival, which was held from November 1-2 in Madison, WI, Emmi Roth USA Cheesemaker Israel Gonzalez served samples of Roth specialties including Grand Cru Original, Grand Cru Reserve, GranQueso, Buttermilk Blue, and Moody Blue. In addition, Plant Manager and Cheese Guru Robert Frie co-hosted a cheesemaker dinner with Chris Roelli Cheese at The Old Fashioned on Saturday night.
“We are proud to have helped lay the groundwork for the rise of the specialty cheese industry in Wisconsin over the last 20 years,” said Steve Millard, president and CEO of Emmi Roth USA. “Wisconsin Cheese Originals shares our passion for specialty cheeses and we are thrilled to sponsor their festival, which brings together Wisconsin cheesemakers and cheese enthusiasts to celebrate our state’s vibrant cheesemaking industry.”
Congratulations on this sponsoring this successful event, Emmi Roth!
