“SIAL Canada is about innovation! Being the third time as their Cheese Ambassador at the Toronto show, I wanted to offer to the SIAL Canada cheese exhibitors something new, a competition. Their displayed international and Canadian cheese will be sampled and judged in Canada – the first competition to do so!"
The International Cheese Competition by SIAL is the very first international cheese competition in Canada! It comes from the desire to present the innovation and expertise of cheese makers and share this passion with the world.
Following its success in 2019 in Toronto with a presentation of 229 cheeses from 9 countries, SIAL Canada welcomes you in April 2022 for its second edition of the international cheese competition.
A jury chaired by Gurth M. Pretty, will be accompanied by cheese industry professionals who will evaluate the cream of the crop of cheesemakers and award a gold medal to the best cheeses from the 28 selected categories. The competition is open to cheeses of all types of milk, whether or not they are exhibitors at SIAL Canada.
The champions will be awarded "Best of Show!" at a dedicated ceremony in the Cheese by SIAL pavilion. Cheese winners will benefit from international visibility and coverage through our media and the SIAL network.
