Willem Jan Rote and Paul Wilde, owners of Uniekaas B.V. stated " The sale of this part of our business will expand the Best Cheese Global capability to invest in our key brands and markets going forward.  We are excited to further expand our Parrano and Tjiezi brands across the globe as well as our overall business presence in Europe, Asia and North America.  In addition, we are convinced that our production, aging and packaging facilities in Holland Kaatsheuvel are in good hands with DOC Dairy Partners.”  Said Wilde “Our Parrano and Tjiezi brands are currently showing healthy growth and with the ability to infuse further investments against these brands we expect to accelerate our overall growth trends.”

Best Cheese Corporation will remain a US subsidiary of Best Cheese Global.  They will continue to focus on sourcing award-winning cheeses from Holland and producing award-winning Goat cheeses at Coach Farm.  The US CEO, Steve Millard, commented “This sale will better allow us to focus on our core competencies to enhance our presence in the US and Canadian marketplace.  Our strong commitment to superior quality and customer service has and always will be our number one priority.”
