Gourmino Earns Top Honors at 2022 World Cheese Championship Contest; Roland Sahli Comments

Not one, not two, but three times has Gourmino's Michael Spycher of Mountain Dairy Fritzenhaus taken home the title of World's Top Cheese for the Gruyère category at the World Championship Cheese Contest in Wisconsin. In addition to earning this coveted honor, the company also earned a slew of other top awards for cheeses across its portfolio.

Roland Sahli, Managing Director, Gourmino"Switzerland enjoys an excellent reputation, particularly because of the good education of its cheesemakers; this is also proven time and again by the good results at international competitions," said Roland Sahli, Managing Director of Gourmino. "But in many cases, international medal winners have also enjoyed part of their education in Switzerland or have employed cheesemakers from Switzerland in their companies."

Other winners from the Gourmino team include:

  • Michael Hanke, Village Dairy Combremont (VD), who earned second place with his Gourmino Le Gruyère AOP in the Gruyère category and won the Silver Medal for his goat cheese semi-hard
  • Stefan Haldner, Village Dairy Sommeri (TG), who took home "Best in Class" with his Gourmino Emmentaler AOP
  • Silvio Schöpfer, Mountain Dairy Kleinstein (LU), who earned 4th place with his Emmentaler AOP, bronze for his Luzerner Bergkäse, and 6th place for his Pilatusblick

This year, around 3,000 cheeses from 29 countries entered in 141 categories at the World Championship Contest, a release explained. The judges were composed of approximately 50 experts from 16 countries, who judged the cheeses in the individual categories, according to a deduction system for cheese defects primarily in taste and consistency.
