You know you're doing something right when you can call yourself a Global Supreme Champion. That's exactly the prize that Margaret Peters won at the 2013 Global Cheese Making Competition in Somerset, U.K. - becoming the first Canadian company to win this award in the competition's 153 year history. The secret? First, Glengarry Cheesemaking starts with high-quality local milk. Next, Peters uses a passive high-temperature, short-time pasteurizer - one of the first of its kind in Ontario. Imported from Sweden, it offers a safer and more energy-efficient alternative to conventional systems. Glengarry's other innovation is using a unique, European-designed flow system to age its cheeses. As a result, it can produce a number of different specialty cheeses, including the award-winning Lankaaster Aged Loaf.
