Yellow Valley™ Cheeses are hand-made Dutch Gouda farmhouse cheeses produced in China. We were the first company to make Gouda cheeses in an artisanal and natural (organic) way. We started making cheese in 2004, but due to extreme government requirements we had to stop producing in 2011. We are considering to restart in 2014 after we have investigating new creative options.
Expatriates and Chinese cheese lovers all over this great country testify that Yellow Valley™ cheeses are superior to any imported Gouda cheese. Why? Yellow Valley™ cheeses are fresh and most importantly: Yellow Valley™ cheeses do not contain any artificial ingredients. Our cheeses are 100% natural and using organic milk free from antibiotics. Our cheeses are made using slow pasteurization methods to preserve its natural taste, unlike the factory cheeses in the big stores today!
We use age-old Gouda recipes handed down from generation to generation of Dutch cheese makers. We maintain high standards of hygiene. Apart from creating good quality cheeses, Yellow Valley™ was established to address social concerns. We ensure that local Chinese farmers get a fair price for their milk and other products. We believe and practice the Fair Trade principles.
Do you sense our pride in Yellow Valley™? Making high quality cheese is not just a business, but an art. Yellow Valley is unique (maybe in the world) as we combine natural, artisanal and fair trade in one company and one product.
We know you will enjoy the various varieties of Yellow Valley™ cheeses. We are confident that once you have savoured our Yellow Valley™ cheeses, you will eagerly spread the word amongst your community and buy again! Natural, responsible, delicious!
