DCI Cheese Company's brands receive three awards at ACS Annual Cheese Competition

DCI Cheese Company (DCI) is pleased to announce that three of its product offerings were awarded at the ACS Annual Cheese Competition held last week in Seattle:

  • Great Midwest® Morel & Leek Jack (2nd place, Flavored Cheeses: Flavor Added Monterey Jack - Made from Cow’s Milk)
  • Liederkranz (3rd place, American Originals: Liederkranz)
  • Salemville® Smokehaus Blue™ (3rd place, Smoked Cheeses: Open Category Made from Cow’s Milk)

Great Midwest flavored jack wheels are known for their unique flavors and incomparable creaminess. Great Midwest Morel & Leek Jack is a smooth, delicate cheese with subtle hints of natural flavors infused in every bite. All the flavorings used in production are prepared and blended in small batches to ensure just the right flavor profile and consistency in every slice.

Liederkranz (pronounced “LEE-duhr-krahntz”) is a surface-ripened snack cheese with a distinctly strong aroma and unique, full-bodied flavor. It is an American replication of Germany’s Limburger cheese that has the same texture and unique aroma, but features a distinctively robust and buttery flavor. Recently reintroduced to the market after a 25-year hiatus, Liederkranz has received widespread acclaim from a legion of dedicated consumers who warmly welcomed the cheese back.

Salemville Smokehaus Blue is a hand-crafted, Applewood smoked cheese that is aged 60 days and has a slightly sweet, lightly smoky flavor. Smokehaus Blue recently took first place in the Blue-Veined Cheese category at the 2010 Wisconsin State Fair Cheese & Butter Contest as well. It is available as six pound wheels and repacks at participating retailers nationwide.

DCI is now accepting orders for award-winning Great Midwest Morel & Leek Jack, Liederkranz and Salemville Smokehaus Blue. For more information, contact a DCI sales representative by e-mail at moreinfo@dcicheeseco.com or by calling 1.800.782.0741.
