How do you mark 180 years of marvelous cheese making? Wisconsin Cheese is turning May into the ultimate celebration of cheese month. From gouda greatness to marvelous mozzarella, the entire month is filled with tasty ways to honor the world’s best cheese.
While the Green Bay Packers fans might wear their beloved cheeseheads all year round, the reality is that Wisconsin is as passionate about cheese as it is their beloved football team. From those squeaky cheese curds to the sharpest cheddar, some people always have at least one scrumptious cheese option in the refrigerator.
For Suzanne Fanning, Chief Marketing Officer for Wisconsin Cheese and Senior Vice President at Dairy Farmers of Wisconsin, she appreciates that Wisconsin and cheese are the perfect pair and creating the best cheese is at their core. Fanning said, “We know that you don’t have to live in Wisconsin to be as obsessed with cheese as we are, so this May we are providing opportunities for cheese lovers nationwide to celebrate along with us and discover the true wonders of Wisconsin… our incredible, award-winning cheeses!”
