Certified-organic specialty cheeses
Emmi Roth USA, Monroe, Wis., introduced a new line of Roth Organics, a collection of four new cheeses now made using fresh, certified-organic milk from local dairy farms.
The organic line includes Roth’s flagship Grand Cru Original, now available in organic, as well as Organic Van Gogh Gouda, Organic Havarti and Organic Sharp Cheddar.
Roth Organic Grand Cru Original is an Alpine-style cheese made from a combination of the finest organic milk and Swiss traditions. The smear-ripened cheese is crafted in authentic copper vats and cured by Roth cellar masters for a minimum of four months to achieve a complex and full-bodied flavor. It’s available in 18-pound wheels and 6-ounce retail cuts.
Roth Organic Van Gogh Gouda features Roth’s signature Van Gogh Gouda, a quintessential Dutch cheese with a straw-yellow body and mellow and mild sweetness. It comes in 10-pound wheels and 8-ounce retail cuts.
Roth Organic Havarti is a versatile cheese with a mild and buttery flavor, perfect for cooking and melting. It’s available in 9-pound loafs and 8-ounce retail cuts.
Roth Organic Sharp Cheddar is crafted from the freshest organic milk and aged for a minimum of 6 months to develop a classic, rich and tangy flavor. It’s sold in 1-pound blocks and 8-ounce retail cuts.
“There is a strong demand for organic products that has grown significantly over the past few years,” says Tim Omer, president and managing director. “We are fortunate to live in a part of the world where fresh, organic milk is available in our backyard. The farmers we work with follow certified-organic dairy farming standards.”
The entire line is available in retailers nationwide and will be rolling out in specialty shops and grocery stores throughout 2017.
