Jarlsberg Cheese

Jarlsberg is based on a secret Norwegian recipe from 1956 – so secret that only a handful of trusted people know of its whereabouts and custodians. The combination of traditional cheese-making and modern technology gives the cheese an edge.

The Norwegian Jarlsberg cheese is known for its distinctive sweet and nutty taste, and of course, those large, round holes. As early as in 1830 the Swiss came to Norway's Jarlsberg to teach the Norwegians to make cheese. These foreign master cheese makers were famous for making cheese with holes, Emmental. There was active production in Norway until 1832 after which the cheese disappeared and in 1956 the cheese recipe was revived, combining the cheese-making traditions with modern technologies.
