Cheese Heads Take World Championship

Move over Parma, make way Roquefort, step aside Gouda, because a cheese maker from Monroe, WI just won the World Championship of Cheese.


Top prize went to a “smear-ripened hard cheese made in Monroe, Wisconsin by Fitchburg-based Emmi Roth USA,” which is Swiss owned.

It’s been almost 30 years since a cheese producers from the States won, for a string cheese created by the Burnett Dairy Cooperative, also in Wisconsin.
