Traditional Cheeses - all free of rBGH and GMOs!
In December 1993, Cedar Grove Cheese became the first in the country to
assure its customers that its products were rBGH-free.
Recombinant Bovine Growth Hormone, or rBGH, is a synthetic hormone used
by some farmers to increase milk production. We believe that
consumers wishing to avoid dairy products containing milk from
rBGH-treated cows should have that choice. Although the FDA
has determined that rBGH is safe. many consumers have indicated that
for a wide variety of personal, social or political reasons, they want
to buy dairy products made from milk produced by untreated cows. Cedar
Grove Cheese is committed to remaining rBGH-free and will continue to
provide consumers with a clear and concise statement of our
policy. All farmers providing milk to Cedar Grove Cheese have
pledged NOT to treat their cows with rBGH. Wisconsin state
law authorizes us to rely on those pledges and to inform consumers of
the farmers' promises.
In January 2001, Cedar Grove Cheese decided that all its cheese should
be made exclusively with non genetically modified organisms
(GMOs). We carefully select our cultures and enzymes based on
the non-GMO status of the product.
Our cheese is truly made the old-fashioned way!
