North Holland cheese
The secret of our Roemer can be traced back to the vast polders of North Holland.
Cows that graze here naturally yield milk that is creamier than milk that originates elsewhere.
North Holland cheese therefore has a fuller and creamier flavour than a Gouda cheese.
The unique North Holland meadow milk is pasteurised and then turned into Roemer cheese in accordance with an authentic recipe.
The cheese is ripened in our modern warehouse. Here, the North Holland cheese is placed on untreated wooden shelves, turned over once in a while and given extra treatment if necessary. This all happens under the watchful eye of our cheesemakers, who monitor the ripening process on a daily basis.
After the ripening process has given the cheese its perfect flavour, it can be delivered to the buyer. The North Holland cheese is available from 6 weeks to about 36 months of age. The buyer can determine what is the perfect flavour for them.
Our North Holland cheese options
In addition to its own, unique flavour, our Roemer also comes in a 35+ variety: the Roemer Light. This is available as a matured light cheese (ripened about 6 months) and an old light cheese (ripened at least 10 months).
Our assortment also features the Roemer Sweet. This cheese is about one year old and contains visible salt and protein crystals that reinforce the unique flavour of the Roemer Sweet.
Roemer: a unique product
To emphasise the uniqueness of this product, the Roemer bears the Protected Designation of Origin. This means our cheese is produced and ripened using a recognised and monitored process.
