Stompetoren cheese owes its name to the village of Stompetoren in North Holland, where our cows graze and our cheeses are produced in the CONO cheese factory in Westbeemster. In this cheese dairy, known as the greenest in the world, old traditional craftsmanship is combined with innovative technology.
The maturing of Stompetoren takes place in Remijn Cheese Wholesale’s unique maturing warehouse. Through the years this family business has proven to be particularly skilled in Dutch cheese maturing. The unique combination of temperature and humidity in the maturing warehouse ensures that the cheese’s flavour can fully develop. And you can taste it! It is no wonder that Stompetoren regularly wins awards at (inter)national product contests.
Stompetoren 48+ cheeses are known for their full flavour creamy texture. No wonder their slogan is: ‘Cheese worth coming back for’. These cheeses also contain a lot less salt than similar 48+ cheeses. Full-fat cheese is available in both 12 and 16 kilo sizes, and their age varies from young to extra old.
Despite the lingering negative image of 35+ cheese (or Light cheese), Stompetoren 35+ cheeses have been gaining in popularity for many years. Due to the special maturing process, the cheeses are wonderfully smooth rather than hard and dry, as is normally expected from light cheese. The 35+ cheeses are also available in all ages and in either a 12 or a 16 kilo size. In addition, we also offer cumin and herb varieties.
Stompetoren Cumin Cheese
Stompetoren also offers a range of cheese specialties. This includes cumin cheese, among others. Its beautiful rich taste combines well with its nutty flavor to ensure a delicious taste experience. Cumin cheese is available in all ages. Finally, we have also developed a special variety that contains less salt. Although Stompetoren cheeses contain little salt as it is, this special variety contains up to 20% less salt. These cheeses mature for about two months, until they have exactly the right flavour. Low in salt, rich in flavour.
