DCI Cheese Company products win eight awards at U.S. Championship Cheese Contest

Eight of DCI Cheese Company’s (“DCI”) specialty cheeses were awarded prizes at the United States Championship Cheese Contest (“USCCC”) held March 12–13 at the Atrium in Lambeau Field, Green Bay, Wis. Of these winners, three received the prominent distinction of “Best of Class.”

DCI’s USCCC award-winning product offerings include the following:

  • Great Midwest® Chipotle Cheddar (Best of Class), a slightly smoky, slightly spicy blended Cheddar with a smooth, consistent flavor.
  • Nikos® Fat Free Feta (Best of Class) featuring the same soft and crumbly texture and pleasantly mild, slightly tangy flavor of traditional Mediterranean-style feta without the fat.
  • Nikos® Mediterranean Feta (Best of Class) is infused with tomatoes, basil, oregano, garlic, lemon juice and spices giving the cheese a delicious medley of rich, tangy flavors.
  • Nikos® Tomato Basil Feta (2nd Place) is a crumbly, robust feta infused with the classic combination of tomatoes and basil.
  • Liederkranz® (2nd Place) is a surface-ripened snack cheese with a distinctly strong aroma and unique, full-bodied flavor.
  • Black River® Blue (3rd Place), a producer certified rBGH-free specialty cheese featuring a rich and creamy texture with beautiful, consistent blue veining and an exceptional earthy flavor.
  • Danamark® Havarti (3rd Place) which is regarded for its pleasantly sweet and mild flavor, rich and buttery aroma and decadently creamy texture.
  • Joan of Arc® Goat Cheese with Peppadew™ (3rd Place), a pleasantly mild and tangy chèvre accented by the sweet, piquant flavor of Peppadew™ peppers.
