Madison, Wis. (January 18, 2020) – Discover your next favorite cheese at the Wisconsin Cheese Pavilion (#2427) this weekend at the Specialty Food Association's Winter Fancy Food Show in San Francisco.

Throughout the show local cheesemongers will guide attendees through Wisconsin cheese tastings and provide perfectly paired cheese and alcohol recommendations. On Monday, Wisconsin will celebrate National Cheese Lover's Day with iconic Wisconsin cheeses, including limburger, and surprise attendees with special visits from some of the state's most notable and award-winning cheesemakers, in addition to Wisconsin Master Cheesemakers, who build on Wisconsin's strength as the state of cheese.

"Wisconsin is proof of what happens when an entire state dreams in cheese," said Suzanne Fanning, Dairy Farmers of Wisconsin Senior Vice President and Chief Marketing Officer for Wisconsin Cheese. "From the state that wins more cheese awards than any other state or country and is home to the only Master Cheesemaker Program outside Switzerland, we are proud to present the highest quality cheeses from our committed makers."

Dairy Farmers of Wisconsin Regional Marketing Managers will be at the show to meet with buyers and distributors. Based regionally across the country, they are focused on supporting retailer efforts to drive sales through multi-channel programming and materials. With Wisconsin cheese, you get high-quality, award-winning products and the support to match.

Featured within the Wisconsin Cheese Pavilion are ten dairy companies, including Crave Brothers, Door Artisan, Farmhouse Kitchens, Nasonville Dairy, Pine River Pre-Pack, Renard's Cheese, Specialty Cheese, Wisconsin Aging and Grading, Widmer's and Winona Foods.
