About the World Championship Cheese Contest
The World Championship Cheese Contest is established in 1957 and is held every two years. It is a technical evaluation that uses an objective measure of cheese defects to select products in each class which best exemplify perfection. The highest scoring cheeses earn a gold medal, with silver and bronze medals awarded to second and third place finishers in each class.
About Old Amsterdam
Old Amsterdam believes that products made with craftsmanship and conviction will be recognised and acknowledged by people with a nose for genuine quality. An independent research institute was given an impossible task by the Westland family: develop a recipe for the most delicious mature cheese. A cheese with ripening crystals and powerful flavour, yet smooth and easy to cut. The result? A patented process that combines cross-border knowledge with Dutch down-to-earthness. Old Amsterdam is different because of the enthusiastic cheesemakers who are dedicated and proud to make a difference. The authentic flavour has been praised and celebrated with international awards for more than 35 years.
