From field to fridge

At Uniekaas, we pride ourselves on our unique approach: from field to fridge. This means that we manage the entire chain. That is what makes Uniekaas not just any other organisation, but a unique one, and provides our buyers with the guarantee that we can always supply them with the best cheese.

The unique approach of Uniekaas

We believe that a commodity product like cheese can still be truly unique. At Uniekaas Holland, we make that possible. By staying true to who we are and continuing to challenge ourselves in terms of innovation, sustainability, quality and food safety, we manage to make every cheese unique.

We achieve this through:


At Uniekaas, we continuously strive to minimise our impact on the environment, society and animals. That is why we only use meadow milk for the Uniekaas brand cheeses and we take a critical look at our packaging to make it suitable for recycling.


Quality Complete quality control and chain management, from field to fridge. Thanks to the daily supply of fresh milk by the farmers in our cooperative, we can make our flavoursome cheeses according to BRC / IFS standards.


With the experience of the past, the knowledge of today and an eye to the future, we will always be the right partner for our customers when it comes to cheeses with the desired quality and the best possible price.

The oldest cheese brand in the Netherlands

In 1956, Uniekaas laid the foundation for the organisation that it is today. Back then, quality, knowledge and decisiveness were brought together to introduce the Netherlands’ first branded cheese. As such, we can proudly call ourselves the oldest cheese brand in the Netherlands.


Uniekaas Holland first started as a joint venture of several affiliated traders, but has since grown into a full chain partner. Over the years, the organisation has undergone constant change and has become more and more professional. One of the most significant changes happened in 2017 when we merged with Germany’s largest dairy concern: the DMK Group. However, our method of cheese making has never changed. We have always stayed true to our Dutch roots. This means we still make our cheeses according to our own recipes and Gouda traditions. And we will always continue to do so. The cheeses for the Uniekaas brand are still made using our own flavoursome recipes. Nowadays, this is done in the Alteveer cheese factory, where the rich cheese history and craftsmanship are very evident.
