Schuman Cheese, Fairfield, N.J., formed an exclusive partnership with Germany-based Bergader Privatkäserei, where Schuman will be the exclusive importer and distributor of Bergader brand cheeses.

“Bergader is a world-class company producing some of the best cheeses in the world,” says Ian Schuman, specialty cheese business unit lead for Schuman Cheese. “We believe that this partnership offers incredible synergies between our two companies, but more importantly, the partnership will give consumers the opportunity to try one of the best cheeses in the world from one of the cleanest and ecologically unique places in Europe.”

The partnership provides U.S. consumers with expanded availability to Bergader’s range of cheeses like Bavaria Blu, the original triple crème blue soft cheese hybrid, as well as Edelpilz, the German alpine blue cheese and a range of Bavarian soft cheeses.

Bergader has been innovating and producing best-in-class cheeses for four generations, since its humble beginnings in the 1902.

Since 1945, Schuman Cheese has been partnering with companies across the world to fulfill its core purpose of enhancing everyday eating experiences with the highest quality cheese.
