Another National Win for Guggisberg Baby Swiss at 2019 American Cheese Society Contest
The American Cheese Society is the leading supporter and promoter of artisan, farmstead, and specialty cheeses produced in America, and encourages the highest standards of cheese-making focused on safety and sustainability. The ACS celebrates the art of American cheese-making every year at an annual competition and conference. This year’s contest yielded 1,742 entries, with awards given to cheeses and dairy products that have achieved technical excellence and exhibit the highest aesthetic qualities. Products are graded by industry professionals on a point system for their achievements in flavor, aroma, texture, and appearance. As a result, the three highest scores in each category receive 1st, 2nd, and 3rd place. This is another prestigious win for Guggisberg, who was recently awarded 2019-2020 United States Grand Champion at the U.S. Championship Cheese Contest in Green Bay, Wisconsin.
