WISCONSIN – HOME TO THE WORLD’S MOST AWARDED CHEESES
For nearly 200 years, generations of Wisconsin dairy farmers have provided local cheesemakers with the superior quality milk they need to craft exceptional specialty cheese products. Rooted in European cheese-making traditions—and dedicated to innovation—Wisconsin offers over 600 cheese varieties, types and styles that deliver the performance professional kitchens need to please demanding customers. The Proudly Wisconsin Cheese® badge is a confirmation of quality. Including it on your menu it makes a statement that you believe in crafting your dishes with better tasting, better quality ingredients.
Wisconsin’s unique cheesemaking heritage has produced exceptional cheese for years. Today, third- and fourth-generation cheesemakers are continuing old-world traditions and setting new standards in cheesemaking craftsmanship and artistry. The state’s 1,200 cheesemakers produce more than 600 varieties, types and styles of cheese, all made under the most stringent state standards for safety, grading and quality. In fact, Wisconsin was the first state to grade cheese for quality and the only state with an advanced training program to help cheesemakers become truly masters of their craft. It’s no wonder Wisconsin Cheese wins more awards than any U.S. state or nation in the world.
