“The International Cheese Competition by SIAL Canada is an excellent opportunity for all cheesemakers to submit their cheeses for evaluation and feedback by cheese professionals. It is the only cheese competition in Canada where cheeses from all over the world can compete in their respective categories and compete for the title of Grand Champion. In the 2022 edition, I was pleased to announce that Canadian, American, Dutch, Swiss and Italian cheeses won. Personally, all 229 cheeses submitted from ten countries were winners.”
