2024 World Cheese Contest Features New Classes

For the first time in its history, the World Championship Cheese Contest will be judging raclette cheese in its own class. Raclette is a type of cheese that is typically melted and served as part of a dish of the same name. The cheese has gained popularity in recent years among cheese lovers around the world.

The contest is also introducing a new class for pasteurized process cheese products. This new class will give manufacturers of these products an opportunity to compete for top honors.

In addition to the new classes, the contest is also offering a discounted entry fee of $75 per entry when you enter by December 1. After that date, all entries will cost $90 per product. Submissions can be entered online on WorldChampionCheese.org. All entries must be submitted by January 26, 2024.

Judging for the contest will take place March 5-7 at the Monona Terrace Convention Center in Madison, Wisconsin. Entries will be evaluated by an elite team of world-renowned judges.
