A passion for good cheese

The peoples behind the scenes – doing their job with passion


Original, down-to-earth, characterful, unique and distinctive – Sbrinz embodies all aspects of a high-quality cheese, a cheese that is as unique as its area of origin. Produced primarily in the Central Swiss cantons of Obwalden, Nidwalden, Lucerne and Zug, Sbrinz enjoys an excellent reputation. Sbrinz is made in 26 selected valley and alpine cheese dairies – mainly in Central Switzerland. To produce Sbrinz, only milk from the region is processed, after which the cheese is also stored in the area of origin, thereby eliminating long, unecological transport routes.
