Canadian Cheese Grand Prix

Now in its 8th edition, this prestigious national competition honours our Canadian cheese makers, giving them the opportunity to showcase the expertise and passion they invest in their craft.

Dairy Farmers of Canada sponsors a nationwide competition to honour all categories of Canadian cheeses made from 100% Canadian cow’s milk and certified as such. This event was launched in 1998 to encourage competitiveness and product excellence, as well as to increase the knowledge and appreciation of Canadian cheeses among industry professionals and consumers.

2013 Cheese Grand Prix Winners

During the 8th edition of the Canadian Cheese Grand Prix, Dairy Farmers of Canada declared Quality Cheese Ricotta as the Grand Champion. The Ricotta made history as the first fresh cheese and the first cheese from Ontario to be honoured as a Grand Champion. A jury of top Canadian food industry experts selected it from 19 impressive category winners.
