The importer joined FrieslandCampina and Best Cheese USA as a newly-established family of brands boasting an assortment of products—from Frico brand cheeses from the Netherlands to the first USDA Certified Cheddars from Europe.

There, I spoke with Michael Pollak, Brand Manager for Organic Kingdom, to learn more about the Organic Kingdom line and the way in which the brand is bringing authentic age-old Somerset tradition to a new group of conscientious U.S. shoppers.

Michael Pollak, Brand Manager, Organic Kingdom Cheese“Organic Kingdom was launched last year, and it’s the first USDA Certified Organic Cheddar available in the U.S.,” Michael told me. “The milk that goes into Kingdom cheese comes from small family farms in Somerset—based in the Southwest of England where the cows are grass-fed and free to roam.”

Organic Kingdom cheeses are made from non-GMO milk containing no antibiotics, growth hormones, or pesticides

With a fresh, friendly design and convenient 7 oz size, the line is tailored to the needs of American consumers. And with mild, mature, and extra mature offerings, Organic Kingdom has options for the aged Cheddar aficionado and mild-Cheddar-only milquetoasts alike.
