Karoun Dairies Wins Two Awards At The 2012 World Cheese Awards

TURLOCK, Calif., Dec. 7, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- For over 20 years, The Guild of Fine Food has brought together the very best examples of the cheesemakers' art to create the World Cheese Awards. The World Cheese Awards accepts only cheese entries, no cream, butter or yogurt – the emphasis is firmly on cheese in all its magnificence. This year, California cheese maker, Karoun Dairies Inc. (, was proudly awarded a Silver and Bronze medal. Karoun won the Silver for their Mozzarella Ball and a Bronze for their Goat Basket Feta.  

This November a record-setting World Cheese Awards filled the NEC in Birmingham (UK) with over 2500 cheese entries from 35 countries – the largest and most respected cheese competition in the world. The prestigious awards were judged by 220 experts from every corner of the world including cheese graders, retailers, chefs and buyers.

"We are honored to have won two awards at the 2012 World Cheese Awards and to receive world recognition by the prestigious Guild of Fine Food," stated Rostom Baghdassarian, company COO.

The Baghdassarian Family immigrated to the United States from Lebanon in 1990 to pursue the American dream and a passion for the art and science of yogurt and cheesemaking. From humble beginnings to being recognized as one of America's premier cheese companies is a source of great pride. "As a family business that is living the American dream, all of us at Karoun Dairies take great pride in creating and manufacturing the most delicious, best quality, all natural cheeses on the market," said Rostom Baghdassarian, company COO. "Serving the Mediterranean, Indian, Middle Eastern, Hispanic and natural markets using old country methods and family recipes, we are proud to share delicious new options for a healthy and flavorful approach to cooking and eating."

As is evident by these latest awards, Karoun continues to set a new standard for Mediterranean handmade cheeses and all natural yogurt products in the United States, with dairy products which are made strictly using only milk from cows that are free from growth hormones, BGH/rBST, and Real California Milk certified.

Through their proprietary brands, Karoun Dairies services various ethnic markets in the U.S. Middle Eastern, Mediterranean, European, Hispanic, Indian, Greek, Russian, Armenian and mainstream American.
