Emilio's Cheese prides itself for the quality of its products. We participated to some Nz Cheese Awards competitions in the past few years (except in 2013 when we couldn't participate). At Emilio's Cheese we don't like it when things are too easy. We like a good challenge, so every year we send different cheeses to the competition. The feedback from the judges ( as well as what our clients say) helps us to improve the quality of our products. Here below are some of the recognitions we received over the years. (NZ Cheese Awards)



In 2014 Stracchino won the Best Fresh Unripened Cheese of New Zealand

In 2010 and 2011 Emilio also won Champion Hobbyist Cheesemaker of New Zealand and Best Hobbyist Cheese of New Zealand.
