Royal Dutch CSK provides the secret ingredient to Holland’s world-famous cheeses. Walk into any Amsterdam cheese shop and you will find tourists raving about the exquisite tastes. What they probably do not know, is that all these famous Dutch cheeses get their specific taste and texture from one place only: Royal CSK, the tastemaker behind virtually all known dairy products in the Netherlands – as well as a growing number on the international market. CSK collects, stores and develops lactic acid bacteria cultures for nearly all cheesemakers in the Netherlands. “You could say that without CSK there would be no Dutch cheese,” says managing director Sanne Melles with a broad smile.
