CHARLOTTESVILLE, Va. - Būf Creamery, an award winning cheese and yogurt creamery, was awarded ribbons by the prestigious American Cheese Society (ACS) at the 34th Annual American Cheese Society Conference held in Denver, Colorado.

Founder and CEO Alejandro Gomez Torres said, "These prizes mean a lot for our team and for our company. Every Team Member in Colombia was streaming the Ceremony of awards sharing the excitement with their families. This is not only a recognition of our high quality products but of our Team effort to differentiate and maintain our leadership in Water Buffalo dairy production for the continent."

About the Water Buffalo at BŪF Creamery

Water Buffalo have called the mountains of Colombia home for many years. Colombia contains over 800,000 of them - one of the highest concentrations in the world. Water buffalo are well suited to rugged and humid environments making the Colombian mountains perfect.

Buf Creamery believes that great grass produces great cheese. The lush grass of the Colombian Andes combined with fresh air creates the foundation for the dairy. The condition of the buffalo is directly linked to the quality of the dairy. By keeping the buffalo relaxed in their natural environment, the cheese tastes better.

The buffalo are free to roam their entire life. They are never confined and only under a shelter during the milking process. Buffalo naturally eat grass and Būf believes that it's best to keep it this way. This means we keep everything natural. From our experience, keeping the calveswith their mother is the most sustainable way to raise water buffalo. Buf uses no hormones, pesticides, or GMO's.
