  • (1888PressRelease) April 08, 2011 - The World Cheese Awards is a feast of 2,629 hopeful cheeses and 201 experienced judges collaborating their pallets and textures to symphonise who is going through to the finals. By late afternoon of the 24th November 2010, BBC Good Food Show's 15-strong panel awarded 47 super gold award-winning cheeses and our flag was flying high.

    Kleinriver Cheese from Stanford, South Africa, won their class with flying colours with their Extra Matured Gruyère.

    Since 1995 South African cheese makers have been experimenting with more exotic and foreign types of cheeses and that same year Klein River Cheese decided to utilize their excess milk by making cheese.

    Although at that time South Africans were more interested in milder cheeses, a Swiss/German cheesemaker was hard at work to training Jaco van Beulen to produce high quality cheeses.

    Last year Jaco van Beulen from Klein River Cheese proved himself again and won first place in the Extra Matured Gruyère Category.

    As the distributor of Italian cheese cultures from Sacco-Clerici to Klein River Cheese, Leon van der Westhuizen from Prime Pharma is proud to congratulate them on their consistently world class products.

    We hope that the next collaboration with our food specialists will result in another success and that with more hard work and milk fumes, the small town of Stanford will stand tall among its competitors at this year's World Cheese Awards.
