Directly translated to English, Uniekaas means “one cheese” and that’s exactly what the company stands for. In the early 1900’s, the Dutch cheese market comprised of small independent cheese producers handling all aspects of cheese production. It wasn’t until the mid 1950’s that a small cooperative of cheese makers came together to share their knowledge and resources to create what is known today as Uniekaas. This formation helped to build one of the leaders in the Dutch cheese market which focused on exploring new ways to create Gouda cheeses without ever losing the importance of Dutch cheese making traditions.
Today, Uniekaas is known for bringing unique styles of specialty Dutch cheese to markets across the world. From its flagship brand Parrano®, to unique gouda styles made from cow, goat, or sheep milk. Uniekaas is a leader of Dutch cheese steeped in decades of tradition and exploration.
