“I am delighted that Glanbia’s Twin Falls [Idaho] facility won a record-breaking eight medals at the last U.S. Cheese Championship Contest,” said John Lanigan, VP of cheese operations at Glanbia Foods Inc. “With almost all the medal-winning cheeses containing Danisco cultures, this great success confirms we were right in having confidence in the flavor profiles provided by Danisco.”
Danisco continues its investment and is in the process of adding capacity for culture production in North America to respond to the growing U.S. demand for cheese cultures.

With this product offering, our U.S. customers will be able to continue creating distinctive cheese in a cost-efficient way.”
