The Dutch Gold label is produced by CONO Cheese makers in the Dutch Westbeemster. For over one hundred years over 475 dairy farmers and the cheese masters have worked together as a cooperative to make the best tasting cheese of the Netherland: unique in its taste and texture. The cooperation is still owned by its members and the cheese production continues to be developed following traditional and artisanal processes. In 2001 Cono Cheese makers were honored with an appointment to the Court of The Netherlands while the Westbeemster area became a UNESCO world heritage site. Today, Cono Cheese makers are building a brand new cheese making facility in the Beemsterpolder. The most environmentally friendly cheese making facility in the world is to be called “The New Time” and will allow the cooperative to continue on its promise: contribute to the future in a way that connects to its roots while staying ahead in taste and sustainability.
