Putting sustainability and quality first
We subscribe to the
As a proud sponsor of the True Dairy movement, we adhere to the “Purity Promise” for True Cheese. It forms an integral part of our uncompromising quality.
We place immense value on sustainability and pride ourselves on running a waste-free cheesery.
We actively fight food fraud and believe in assisting our customers in making informed decisions about true cheese, and the difference between pure dairy cheese and so-called “analogue” or “modified” products.
As part of our sustainable farming practices, we have carefully sourced the milk we use for our cheese. All our milk comes from three herds of Jersey cows that graze on pastures in the Ceres Valley.
We collect nearly 20 000 liters of milk each day and make more than 15 tonnes of cheese each week.
Because we make different styles of cheese, not a single drop of dairy is wasted. Our award-winning Ricotta cheese is made from the whey that is left over from other cheese making processes, for example. Any left-over whey is then, again, fed to the pigs at our piggery.
Working with our dedicated team of employees, Zandam Italian cheese is crafted to perfection every day, and our customers have come to trust us as a gold standard in authentic Italian cheese.
