Kvibille Whiskyädel, Apetina Feta and Black Castello scooped gold medals at the World Cheese Awards 2007 held recently in connection with the International Food & Drink Exhibition in London.

Apetina Feta is among the cheeses from Arla Foods, which was awarded a gold medal at the World Cheese Awards 2007. Organised by an association of delicatessens, the competition attracted more than 2,000 cheeses from across the world, which were judged by 120 international judges. Three of the gold medals went to cheeses from Arla Foods - Kvibille Whiskyädel (made in Kvibille, Sweden) as well as Apetina Feta (made in Bov, Denmark) and Black Castello (made in Gjesing, Denmark).

"We are proud of this recognition, which comes from a panel of highly qualified cheese
As far as Apetina is concerned, the gold medal certainly serves the purpose of establishing the Apetina name internationally. It shows that we take our category leadership serious and that we are constantly working to develop and improve our products," says Arla Foods' international marketing director Kim Christensen.

"Castello's award confirms once more that it is a strong brand and a top quality product," Kim Christensen adds.

Arla Foods also received a gold medal for the unique, Swedish-produced Kvibille Whiskyädel, which is a cheese that is bathed in whisky at the dairy before being set aside for its maturation process. The cheese is only sold in Sweden.
