With a whopping 15 new medals to its credit, Schuman Cheese is seeing the fruits of a growing focus on innovation and product development. Several new-to-market varieties earned acclaim, alongside the company’s flagship Cello brand and popular Montforte cheeses. Three varieties from the just-launched Yellow Door Creamery Alpine collection medaled at the International Cheese Awards (ICA) competition; the collection also earned recognition at the American Cheese Society (ACS) Judging & Competition.
“Seeing our traditional cheeses earn recognition in the industry is gratifying because it means we’re consistently crafting quality cheeses that stand the test of time,” said Christophe Megevand, head cheese maker at Schuman Cheese. “As exciting as that is, it’s also a real delight to see our newest cheeses capturing attention. Bringing exceptional new products to market takes hard work and patience, and these adventurous new flavors are showing us that the effort has been worthwhile.”
