For the fourth consecutive year Guggisberg Cheese has claimed the top spot in the Swiss category at the United States Champion Cheese Contest, taking first place as well as third for their Premium Swiss cheese. The contest, which takes place biennially, was held March 7 and 8 at Lambeau Field in Green Bay, Wisconsin. It is considered to be one of the most prestigious and largest competitions in the country.

A record 2,303 cheese submissions from 33 different states were split into one of 105 classes. Within each class cheeses were scored on a 100-point scale by a panel consisting of professional judges from within the industry and universities.

The three highest-scoring cheeses in each category, judged on flavor and body, were awarded trophies. The Guggisberg Cheese submissions were rindless 200-pound Swiss blocks, which finished first, scoring 99.75, and third, scoring 98.90.
