AWARDS

The new Zealand cheese awards is an annual event in which the best cheeses in the country are put forward and judged for the best.

Although Meyer Cheese is small we are big contenders at the awards winning the supreme champions twice (1994) and 2012 General manger Miel Meyer also won cheese maker of the year in 2011.

One award which was very special was the Cheese of the Decade given by the New Zealand small cheese makers association Meyer Gouda received it for consistent success over a 10 year period, something we are very proud of.

Quality and consistent quality across the range is what we strive for so the awards history we have reflects well what we do.
