Saputo Products Win Four Awards at Wisconsin State Fair

Saputo Cheese USA Inc.’s specialty cheese group (“Saputo”), recently received four awards at the 2013 Wisconsin State Fair Cheese & Butter Contest. Saputo’s two first place winners—Salemville® Blue cheese and Black Creek® Colby cheese—were featured at the annual Blue Ribbon Cheese & Butter Auction at the Wisconsin State Fair on August 9th. Saputo also participated in the auction, purchasing three Blue Ribbon winners for a total donation of $3,820 to the Wisconsin State Fair Dairy Promotion Board.

Saputo’s Wisconsin State Fair award-winning product offerings include the following:

  • Salemville® Blue cheese (1st Place), a perennial award-winner that is recognized for its well-balanced flavor and picturesque veining.
  • Black Creek® Colby cheese (1st Place) and Black Creek® Monterey Jack cheese (2nd Place), conscientiously cultivated from the distinctly rich and creamy milk of Wisconsin’s Fox River Valley by Greg Palubicki, Saputo’s Certified Master Cheesemaker.
  • Black River® Blue cheese (3rd Place), a full-flavored blue-veined cheese that features exceptionally earthy, savory notes.

All of Saputo’s award-winning cheeses are available for purchase at select retailers nationwide. Retailers interested in carrying these items can contact a Saputo sales representative by e-mail at or by calling 1.800.782.0741 for more information.
