The International Cheese Guild, the most prominent cheese association in the world, recently held a ceremony at the French embassy residence in Beijing to celebrate its 12 newest members.

Some of the association's top management, including its president Roland Barthelemy, attended the celebration.

The 12 new members include Maurice Gourdault-Montagne, French ambassador to China, Jean-Jacques De Dardel, Swiss ambassador to China, and Ettore Francesco Sequi, Italian ambassador to China.

They were rewarded for their efforts and contributions in promoting cheese throughout various activities over the years. Together with all guild members in China, they will continue to nurture the culture and knowledge of cheese across China, creating a strong link between foreign and local cheesemakers, and further develop the whole cheese industry in China by introducing the benefits of cheese into people’s daily lives, according to Jean-Paul Torris, Maitre Honoris Caseus of the International Cheese Guild and the CEO of France-based cheese group Savencia Fromage & Dairy.

The International Cheese Guild was founded in 1969 to promote the cheese dairy industry. It has more than 6,000 members in over 30 countries.
