The South African Cheese Festival, presented for the 17th time this year from Friday 27 to Sunday 29 April 2018, annually affords a number of small cheese makers the opportunity to receive significant exposure for their businesses and products.

“The Cheese Festival has been bringing cheese producers and cheese lovers together for over a decade. This year, with the support of our partners the Western Cape Department of Agriculture and Absa, we can once again offer boutique cheese makers the opportunity to introduce their cheeses to more than 30 000 visitors,” says Johan Ehlers, Chief Executive Officer of Agri-Expo, organisers of the SA Cheese Festival.
