Sartori receives "Best of Class" at World Championship Cheese Contest

PLYMOUTH, Wis., March 24, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Sartori Cheese received two "Best of Class" awards at this year's World Championship Cheese Contest held in Madison, WI. The competition was host to over 2,600 entries from a total of 22 countries. Sartori's Extra-Aged Asiago was named "Best Asiago" while SarVecchio® Parmesan received a "Best of Class" in the shredded cheese open class.

Sartori Celebrates 75 Years of Cheesemaking.

Two years ago at this biennial competition, Sartori's Extra-Aged Asiago took home a "Best of Class" in the Open Class Hard Cheeses and Sartori's SarVecchio Parmesan received a "Best of Class" in the shredded class, making it the best shredded cheese in the world 4 years running. "This competition is very technical. The judges look for up to 50 defects in a cheese and judge in tenths of a point up to 100 points. Their standards of quality are set high," states R&D vice president, Pat Mugan.

Sartori is no stranger to setting high quality standards. On a daily basis, they are working with their dairy patron farmers to produce the highest quality rBST free milk. These high standards of quality milk are crucial to the making of high quality cheese. "The incredibly high quality milk provided by our patron farms is a vital first step in making great cheese. When out visiting with the farms, you can see these patron producers have a true love for the land and their animals. They know that the milk they are providing to Sartori is helping to make award-winning cheese and they're proud of that," states third generation owner and CEO, Jim Sartori.

Sartori's Extra-Aged Asiago and SarVecchio Parmesan cheeses are hand-crafted in Antigo, Wisconsin. Each cheese wheel is carefully handled by Sartori's team members. "We have high quality standards not just at the farm, but also at our cheese making facilities. It's important for us to follow through with a level of quality that we are proud of. If we all continue with high quality standards, we'll see the results, such as a 'Best of Class' win at one of the most prestigious cheese competitions in the United States," states Jim.

Sartori received one additional award for their Merlot BellaVitano®, a second place finish right behind their SarVecchio Parmesan in the shredded cheese open class.

Much of IT terminology is often misused and misapplied. Modernization and transformation are two such terms. They are often used interchangeably even though they mean different things and have very different connotations. Indeed, it is somewhat safe to assume that in IT any transformative effort is likely to also have a modernizing effect, and thus, we can see these as levels of improvement efforts. However, many businesses are being led to believe if they don’t transform now they risk becoming ...
