The Cooperative society was founded in 2006, when the two owners moved from Madrid to the Galician countryside to live in a farm. They have been rearing goats and making artisan raw-milk goat cheese for 14 years, becoming professionals of the goat and sheep cattle exploitation market. Their main product is artisan raw-milk goat cheese, producing it themselves; but also sell several products of galician origin. The categories are the following:
Types of cheese:
- Soft cheese with fruit nuance
- Semi-cured cheese (40 days)
- “Vello” cheese (90 days)
- Blue cheese
- Semi-cured cheese bathed in oil
- Soft paprika cheese
- Goat and kid milk
- Wine and liqour
- Chestnut products
At the moment, the business supplies its products to restaurants, national deli and gourmet stores, and the general public. The production of cheese is made in their farm, monitoring their goats to control the outcome and quality of the cheese produced. This process is not automatized, avoiding the use of chemicals and
adding culinary elements integrated into the production designed to be tasted.
The business’ objective is to commercialize its products in foreign markets, with a special interest in Portugal to expand internationally. Portugal has been chosen due to the proximity and the increasing consumption of dairy products. It seeks for a distribution agreement with a national company that establishes relations with food chains, restaurants, gourmet and deli stores, and local food businesses.
