"Cheesemongers have their place in this beautiful contest! To reinforce all the professionals in the Brazilian cheese network and recognize the value of each one. Ripeners, cheesemongers, technicians, cheesemakers and researchers and all the actors in the cheese world: everybody has a place and a position in this event without an equivalent."

"This World Cheese Contest comes to reinforce the work of two decades of our cooperative in the Serro region: it will increase the technical knowledge, it will democratise the cheesemaking activity and it will promote inclusion of the cheesemakers that still work underground."
