More good news out of the UK for Croatian cheese producer Paška sirana from the island of Pag.
Paška sirana has won a medal at the International Cheese & Dairy Awards which were held on Thursday in Staffordshire, England for their cheese spread with truffles – ‘Sirni namaz tartufi’.
The Croatian cheese producers won the bronze medal in the Cheese – Any variety that contains Savoury Additives category.
The spread, which is made from cow’s milk with truffles, is a new product from Paška sirana, who are this year celebrating their 75th anniversary.
“We are very happy and proud because this is something completely new in cheese production on the island of Pag. We have not produced cheese spreads before and started to produce this product in very challenging times, that is why this is big news and makes us very happy. This is the best present for our 75th anniversary,” Paška sirana told us.
Paška sirana currently produces two cheese spreads, a classic and with the award-winning spread with truffles.
“The plan is to widen this product line with new flavours, but step by step. The classic is made from cow’s and sheep’s milk and it is one of the rare cheese spreads on the market made from sheep’s milk. Usually, they are from cow’s milk,” they added.
