Five Beemster Cheeses awarded at DLG 2015
WESTBEEMSTER – The authoritative German Agricultural Society (DLG) once again awarded gold medals to Beemster cheeses at the annual cheese quality tests. CONO Cheesemakers, the organization behind Beemster cheese, is proud to have scored such high points in this competition. The gold medal winners were Beemster Medium, Beemster Aged, Beemster X-O- and Beemster Royaal. Beemster Mild received a silver medal.
‘We are thoroughly delighted with these prizes,’ says Eric Hulst, Managing Director of CONO Cheesemakers. ‘CONO Cheesemakers places great emphasis on the traditional preparation and natural ripening process of its cheeses. This requires outstanding craftsmanship and high-quality milk. Both are crucial for the excellent taste of our cheeses. The quality of the milk is so high thanks to the active outdoor grazing of our cows, with more than 95%. Our cheeses are made from this quality milk, which again has resulted in gold medals for our Beemster cheeses.
