A new offering is bolstering an already versatile cheese lineup as Gayo Azul®, a proud brand under the Royal FrieslandCampina umbrella, brings Queso Fresco to its portfolio.

Josh Rosen, Senior Brand Manager, FrieslandCampina"Gayo Azul has been a constant companion in many kitchens for years, and we are thrilled to add Gayo Azul Queso Fresco to our lineup,” Josh Rosen, Brand Manager for FrieslandCampina, said. “With the rise in Hispanic influence in cheeses and other dishes, Queso Fresco is sure to be a big hit at home to enjoy ‘Taco Tuesdays’ and other food occasions.”

Gayo Azul’s latest launch can be sampled in person at the FrieslandCampina IDDBA booth in Houston, Texas, as well as at the Summer Fancy Food Show in New York City in the coming weeks.

An authentic taste of Hispanic cheese, the new Queso Fresco joins several other Gayo Azul cheese varieties, including:

  • Cotija: Firm, crumbly Mexican aged cow's milk cheese perfect for enchiladas, tacos, and street corn toppings
  • Dutch Edam: Firmer Gouda cousin, ideal for cheeseboards, baking dishes, and salads
  • European Swiss: Semi-firm cheese great for burgers as well as cold and grilled sandwiches
  • Queso Blanco: Fresh, white cow’s milk cheese ideal for grilling
  • Queso Para Freir: Fresh, white cow's milk cheese known for its higher melting point, perfect for frying, sandwiches, and baked dishes

Gayo Azul itself boasts a distinctive approach to cheesemaking, merging Dutch and Hispanic traditions. With decades of evolution and innovation, Gayo Azul offers an array of cheeses that have found their place in kitchens across generations, according to a press release, while FrieslandCampina is one of the world's most prominent dairy cooperatives with products in over a hundred countries. Fully owned by Zuivelcoöpate FrieslandCampina U.A., which represents 16,995 dairy farmers across the Netherlands, Germany, and Belgium, FrieslandCampina combines an extensive network with the hallmark touch of Gayo Azul’s unique, high-quality approach.

Explore both in June, whether at IDDBA booth #3445 or Summer Fancy Food Show booth #658. We’ll see you there!
