Top Cheese: Pearl Valley Wins Big Honor
With Ohio being the #1 state in the country for Swiss cheese production, it’s no surprise that our very own Pearl Valley of Fresno, Ohio, won a top honor at the 2014 World Championship Cheese Contest held recently in Madison, Wisconsin.
Pearl Valley won “Best of Class” for Rindless Swiss Style Cheese, earning a score of 98.15. Each cheese was judged on a 100 point scale for appearance, flavor and texture. The company was also recognized as one of the top 16 cheeses in the competition.
Thousands of cheese makers from around the world participated in the event– 2,615 entries from 22 countries, to be exact, making it the largest technical cheese competition ever held. Congratulations to Pearly Valley Swiss on this award!
