Baker Cheese solidified itself as a consistent winner following up on last year’s Silver Medal in the same category. As the original string cheese manufacturer, Baker Cheese prides itself on being both the critics’ and consumers’ choice for string cheese.

“Our focus and mission is to produce the highest quality string cheese every single day because customers have high expectations and we welcome that trust in our cheese making abilities,” stated President and fourth generation co-owner, Brian Baker. “We take great pride in working with excellent local farmers and a dedicated staff of employees to craft our award winning string cheese.  This prestigious Gold Medal award is a testament to the consistent attention to detail, service, and quality we put into every aspect of our organization.”

Baker Cheese is a fourth generation, family-owned, cheese manufacturer based in the Wisconsin town of St. Cloud. A tradition of tremendous service, quality and award winning cheese are the main reasons the company has maintained its Wisconsin cheese heritage since 1916. Our string cheese is marketed in the Upper Midwest under the Baker Cheese label, as well as around the world under many different private labels.
