Emmi Roth Cheese is a Monroe, Wisconsin-based specialty cheese manufacturer whose niche in the U. S. cheese market is the production of classic European cheeses like Gruyere, Havarti, Fontina, Butter Kase, and Raclette. Once the domain of European manufacturers, these specialty cheese varieties are made in modern cheese-making facilities that utilize some of the traditional labor-intensive processes established in Europe long ago. Some of Emmi Roth's cheesemakers were trained in Switzerland. Steve McKeon, President and Chief Operating Officer, is proud of the company's unique production procedures and attention to authenticity and detail saying that "we're creating a piece of art, not a piece of science."
Emmi Roth Cheese has the nation's largest operational copper vat used in making Gruyere, its flagship product. At present Emmi Roth Cheese is the only known U. S. manufacturer of Gruyere, distributing its world class and award-winning cheeses throughout the country. Wisconsinmade.com is pleased to include this Green County cheesemaker among our family of Wisconsin artisans.
