Awards

Since first entering the New Zealand specialty cheese awards in 1995, Karikaas has done very well.

All our entries to the cheese awards come off the shelf in the cheese store and are representative of the cheese sold to the buying public.

Every year Karikaas cheeses have won gold and silver medals, and over the years have also won a number of Champion Cheeses, (category awards).

This year at the 2016 cheese awards our new NZ Series : PUMAHANA,  (warmth) won the best NZ Original Cheese award.

Fantastic!
