Hello / Hallo

We are Daniel and Caroline Hostettler, the owners of Quality Cheese Inc, and thats our dog and taste tester Rocco

Quality Cheese was founded by Caroline Hostettler in December 1997 in order to bring the best Swiss cheeses to the US market. From the beginning the portfolio consisted of cheeses that were exceptional in quality and distinguishably different from the standard Swiss cheeses that were available in the US at that time. Max McCalman, “Dean of Cheese” and author of “Cheese - a Connaisseur’s Guide to the World’s Best” wrote: “Caroline Hostettler has singlehandedly raised the bar for artisan cheesemaking in the U.S.!”

At first, Quality Cheese imported exclusively cheeses by affineur Rolf Beeler, but then in 2006, in an ever growing market, we added the “Caroline Hostettler Line”. The same year we choose Crystal Food Imports as our US partner which has since become “World’s Best Cheeses”. Over the past 20 years in business a lot has changed. We got competitors, but we are still the only company with an air program in order to bring the soft cheeses fresh and safe to the U.S.

In the past few years Quality Cheese has concentrated more and more on the health aspect of cheeses. Hence Caroline created the “Adopt-an-Alp”-program in 2013 in order to support transhumance, the moving of livestock from one grazing ground to another seasonally, and bring highly regarded and truly healthy Alpage cheeses (or Alpkäse) on the market. These treasures are only made in the summer and in the fresh air of the Swiss Alp and Jura mountain range.
