Little cheese, BIG winner! 

St. Albans, the Creamery's first 100 percent cows' milk cheese with a ooey-gooey molten center (fondue for two anyone?) took home a coveted Good Food Award™ at the annual ceremony held in San Francisco over the weekend.

Hear what Creamery big cheese, Adeline Druart had to say about the newest accolade:

“We are proud to earn the recognition of the Good Food Foundation, an organization whose core values so closely align with our own,” said Adeline Druart, president of Vermont Creamery. “Winning a Good Food Award means we’re honoring our commitment to transparency and outstanding product quality, and it takes a village.”    

This is the fourth Good Food Award for Vermont Creamery in the past five years. Previous winners include Bonne Bouche, the Creamery’s flagship aged goats cheese in 2014, Coupole in 2015, and Bonne Bouche again in 2017.

Each January, the Good Food Foundation organizes a three-day Good Food Awards weekend for the public and the trade to meet, celebrate, taste and buy from the nearly 200 winners: the exceptional food crafters who top the charts in a blind tasting and meet the environmental and social responsibility standards of the Good Food Awards.

Vermont Creamery’s St. Albans was one of two Vermont cheeses to earn this accolade in 2019, Spring Brook Farm’s Reading also took home a Good Food Award.

Good Food Award winners passed a rigorous vetting process to confirm they met specific standards around responsible agricultural practices, sourcing transparency and good animal husbandry.
