A Message from John

The Wisconsin Cheese Makers Association is bigger and better than ever. That may sound like marketing “spin,” but I’m happy to say it’s true!

Your Association has welcomed 25 new manufacturers and more than 70 suppliers in just the past two years. Now, nearly 700 companies across the nation support WCMA.

And our trainings and new initiatives - including the Dairy Food Safety Alliance, WCMA Workforce Committee, and Young Professionals - are offering increased value to members. Even our new website, WisCheeseMakers.org, is a step up, with a user-friendly, searchable member directory.

Your ideas fuel our growth. Plug into WCMA trainings, events, and committees and give us our next opportunity to grow!

Sincerely,

John T. Umhoefer
