Johan Ehlers, CEO of Agri-Expo, organisers of the SA Cheese Festival, attributed the success of the 16th Festival to the focus on cheese and this diverse dairy product’s culinary companions, set in a festive Cape atmosphere. About 30 000 people attended the Festival at Sandringham where they enjoyed sampling 30 t of cheese from boutique and larger commercial cheeseries from across the country. The Agri-Expo Cheesery, which enabled visitors to spend quality time with some of the country’s best cheesemakers, proved to be very popular. Consumers were treated to new and innovative cheeses, including those flavoured with coffee, red wine and lavender.
Agri-Expo joined forces with the Western Cape Department of Agriculture, which enabled smaller producers and entrepreneurs to expose the consumer to their unique niche products such as figs, pomegranates, honey, mushrooms and more – all the perfect cheese companions.
Agri-Expo warmly thanks every visitor, exhibitor, partner, supplier and all co-workers who contributed to the success of the 16thSA Cheese Festival. Press release.
