Cheeses with Santa Catarina DNA performed well again at the World Cheese Awards, the ‘Oscars’ of the gourmet cheese, held this year in Trondheim, Norway. Once again, Pomerode Alimentos stood out among the Brazilian competitors in the fray, being the only brand in Latin America to win the Super Arrow Medal – which is awarded when all jurors have a unanimous assessment regarding the high quality of the product.
The honor came with Morro Azul cheese, made from cow’s milk and white mold. The company describes it as “very smooth and creamy,” and it is wrapped in a wooden belt that helps build the aroma and flavour. Same product I have already taken superaro In the competition in 2022.
