Belle Chevre Wins Medals at 2019 International Cheese Awards

ELKMONT, Ala. – Belle Chevre impressed judges at this year’s highly competitive International Cheese & Dairy Awards, held in Nantwich, England on July 31, 2019, taking home a bronze medal for its goat’s milk Fig Cream Cheese and a silver award for its Chevre Cheesecake.

Praised for its quality, artistry and depth of flavor, Belle Chevre’s fresh, all-natural handcrafted Fig Cream Cheese – made with real fig – garnered the bronze medal for its superior taste and creamy texture in a crowded field of flavored soft, semi-soft and cream cheeses.

International acclaim for the brand’s Fig Cream Cheese anchors Belle Chevre’s positioning as “the better cream cheese.” Not only is the range of products healthier than regular cream cheese with 2.5 times more protein, less fat, more calcium, and easier to digest, the line is appreciated – and has been awarded – for its exceptional flavor and creamy, spreadable consistency.

“A favorite flavor in our new line of chevre cream cheeses, recognition of Belle Chevre’s Fig Cream Cheese in a category teeming with competitors is a true honor,” notes Tasia Malakasis, Belle Chevre CEO and Chief Cheese. “It’s always great to see our products acknowledged for their quality and artistry at the international level,” Malakasis continued. “Each accolade and honor is a testament to our commitment to high-quality goat cheeses and to the talents of our team.”

On an equally exciting note, Belle Chevre was applauded for its Chevre Cheesecake with a silver honor in the specially designated “dessert cheesecake” category. Creamy, light and airy in texture, the Chevre Cheesecake is an all-natural sweet dessert with a subtly delicious tang of chevre flavor.

For more than 120 years, the annual International Cheese & Dairy Awards has attracted entries from around the world. This year’s competition, proclaimed as The Biggest and Best Cheese & Dairy Show in the World, included over 5,100 product entries from over 30 countries, judged by more than 250 industry experts.
