OCONTO FALLS, WI – July 31, 2017 – Springside Cheese celebrated a week of wins, earning four accolades at the International Cheese Awards (ICA) in Nantwich, England and three at the American Cheese Society Awards (ACS) in Denver, Colorado the week of July 24, 2017.
Aged Cheddar was honored with two silvers and a bronze at ICA and took second place at ACS.
Springside’s original Krakow® received silver at the ICA, the first award since launching last year. Krakow® is modeled after the sweet Polish Podlaski cheese and shares characteristics of a rich and creamy German Butterkase. It’s a buttery-rich semi-soft cheese that’s silky smooth and delightfully meltable with hints of sour cream.
Cheddar curds took second and Colby third at ACS rounding out the exciting week of wins for Springside.
More than 5,500 cheeses from over 50 countries were entered into the 2017 International Cheese Awards, up 13.5% from 2016 with over 250 expert judges from around the world. More than 2,000 entries from across North America were part of the 2017 American Cheese Society Awards.
With the increased level of competition at both award shows, Springside is humbled and grateful to receive recognition for their accomplishments. “We are truly honored to see our cheese awarded on a local and global level,” said Keith Hintz, president of Springside Cheese. “It’s a testament of our team’s commitment to producing the finest hand-crafted cheese for our customers.”
