BelGioioso Cheese Wins 7 Medals at American Cheese Society Contest

If there is one feeling I’m familiar with being a trade news writer, it’s FOMO. And I’ve had major FOMO ever since the results of this year’s American Cheese Society contest started rolling through my inbox. With 1,742 entries representing 257 companies, I know that BelGioioso stood out loud and proud, because it was awarded a total of seven prestigious medals.

Gaetano Auricchio, Executive Vice President, BelGioioso Cheese“The annual contest is a great touch point for our Cheesemakers to hear quality feedback from expert judges,” said Gaetano Auricchio, Executive Vice President. “It’s also an industry celebration where Cheesemakers come together to learn from each other in a truly collaborative way. Like many of the smaller Cheesemakers who attend, we started making just one cheese, Sharp Provolone. Forty years later, we are fortunate to be producing over 27 different cheeses and celebrating with seven awards.”

BelGioioso was awarded seven medals

According to a press release, BelGioioso was recognized for the following cheeses:

  • 1st Place Gold Medal – BelGioioso Stracciatella
  • 2nd Place Silver Medal – BelGioioso Burrata with Black Truffle
  • 2nd Place Silver Medal – BelGioioso Ricotta con Latte® Platinum
  • 2nd Place Silver Medal – La Bottega di BelGioioso Cow & Sheep’s Milk Gorgonzola
  • 3rd Place Bronze Medal – BelGioioso Burrata3rd Place Bronze Medal – BelGioioso Ricotta con Latte® Whole Milk
  • 3rd Place Bronze Medal – BelGioioso Sharp Provolone Mandarini

Sean Moran, Vice President of Sales and Marketing, BelGioioso“BelGioioso Stracciatella is one of our newest offerings and the 1st place Best of Class award recognizes its quality,” said Sean Moran, Vice President of Sales and Marketing. “It’s the ‘Heart of Burrata’ the rich, sweet, milky filling you find inside our award-winning Burrata. It’s made to order and a great new addition to any deli specialty cheese case.”

Congratulations to BelGioioso on these wins!
