Our Co-operative's Awards

Our Co-operative's Awards

Before the awards. Before the grocery-aisle displays. Before the cool of the cheese caves. Even before the products—the best cheddar and cottage cheese and yogurt and clothbound and the rest. Before that, there was simply this: a powerful love for what we do. 

That’s how Cabot makes the best cheese in the world. We’re there, every step of the way. Our cheese graders, for example—they taste and sample every wheel and block of cheese as they’re aged to ensure that they’re just right. We keep trying new things too, like lactose-free cheese. And now, even our Greek yogurt has gotten in on the award-winning act!

From our barns and creameries to the grocery cooler and your table—that’s the story of the best-tasting cheese in the world. Whether it’s cheddar, Swiss, Colby Jack, or anything else, you’ll taste that care and commitment in every bite. 

And the awards? Since the 1990's, our products have been recognized year after year as the best. We see this recognition as a testament to all that hard work. They make us feel like we must be doing something right. We hope you feel the same way. Here's a recap of the last five years.
