Cheese Technology Tours

For the more than a decade, WCMA has expanded the horizons of member cheesemakers through our biennial international Cheese Technology Tours.  As our association opens doors to cheese manufacturing and associated supplier plants in locales around the world, WCMA members learn from their counterparts in other countries, often with hands-on, at-the-vat opportunities.

Join WCMA for the 2017 Cheese Technology Tour to Denmark and enjoy exclusive cheese plant tours, a visit to the home of Chr. Hansen, a stay on Bornholm Island - home of World Contest-winning Danish Blue - and the sights and flavors of Copenhagen and the Danish countryside.

This is WCMA’s eighth Technology Tour in Europe, so expect plant tours that are not otherwise offered, first-class accommodations, group events and plenty of individual time. The trip is set for Sept. 20- to Oct. 1, 2017, with coach service from Madison to O’Hare, direct flights to and from Copenhagen, and coach travel each day.  Click here for complete details.
Reservations and a small down payment are needed by May 15. WCMA dairy manufacturers have first priority, then dairy processors, then suppliers for this limited-size group. Spouses are most welcome.  Contact WCMA's John Umhoefer for details.  We'll see you in Denmark!
