Mainland Classic Swiss

Our famous Classic Mainland Swiss Style Cheese is a very sweet and nutty Kiwi favourite. Its holey appearance makes it aesthetically pleasing and it tastes as good as it looks.

Tasting notes

A sweet cheese with rich and nutty flavours - think sweet herbaceous meadows.

Making the Most of Mainland Swiss

Our Mainland Swiss Style Cheese has a gorgeous nutty rich flavour. The sweetness of the cheese makes it exceptional for crafting the famed Reuben sandwich or you could try it on a savoury breakfast burger stacked between bacon and eggs and a dollop of sauce! A great cheese to choose if you’re watching your salt intake, as it contains 50 percent less salt*. The holes dotted across its surface make for an interesting looking addition to a salad and if you add it to a cheeseboard it’s a definite conversation starter. Available in a 200g block.

How Mainland Swiss is crafted

Matured for two weeks at a higher temperature than normal our Swiss cheese propionic bacteria culture gives it a sweet, nutty flavour and forms the “swiss eye” holes it’s famous for.

**While we try to represent product images accurately, the representation may differ from the actual product due to natural gas production in swiss-style cheese making which produces the distinctive holes.
