Specialist Spanish food importer Mevalco is delighted to announce that its Olavidia Quesos y Besos has been voted the World’s Best Cheese at the World Cheese Awards. Mevalco, who is the exclusive UK importer of Olavidia Quesos y Besos, won the award yesterday as the awards took place in Asturias.
The winning cheese Olavidia, which is a goat’s cheese matured with charcoal, is off white in colour and when cut shows a beautiful vein of ash that resembles the classic Morbier.
As the FWD’s Best Small Wholesaler of the Year in 2019, Mevalco offers retailers a unique range of inspiration and innovative ingredients and products sourced from artisan producers across Spain.
Speaking on behalf of the company David Mendendez, says:
“It’s come as no surprise that Olavidia has been voted the World’s Best Cheese. We always say it as one of the best kept secrets of our range and now that secret is well and truly out. It’s a magnificent cheese that has a delightful texture; slightly creamy and buttery at first, with a mild floral touch and a balanced aftertaste.
If any retailers would like to the opportunity to stock this fantastic cheese for Christmas, do get in touch with our sales team. It really is the best cheese in the world.”
