‘Naturally tasty cheese’
Organic farmers use organic feed for their animals. Their animals have more space than is usual on a typical farm. Animals are generally given fewer antibiotics. The living conditions of the animals are geared towards promoting their natural immune system. The farmers strive to run their farms in the most natural way possible.
The production process for organic cheese is entirely natural, and of course uses exclusively natural ingredients. All the ingredients we use are certified as organic by SKAL Bio Controle (the Dutch authority for authorising organic food). No preservatives are added during the production process. Organic cheese is allowed time to develop its flavour as it naturally ages. Instead of artificially speeding up the ageing process, we create the optimal conditions in which cheese can slowly intensify in flavour.
Organic cheese is a conscious choice, which is better for the environment and better for animals.
