A Croatian cheese from the island of Pag has won a best cheese title at the 2014 World Championship Cheese in Wisconsin, USA…
After rigorous testing, Sirana Gligora Paški sir with pressed olives collected 99.90 points to claim the title as the best cheese in the world in the hard sheep’s milk cheeses category. Sirana Gregora Paški, together with two other cheeses, scored the highest points of the entire competition, which featured more than 2,500 cheeses from 22 countries from around the world in 22 categories.
“We are delighted with the result,” said director of the Pag family business Šime Gligora.
It is not the first award the cheese has won. Last year it beat over 4,200 cheeses to be voted the best sheep milk cheese in the world at the International Cheese Awards held in Nantwich, England.
