Women cheesemakers – trailblazers in the cheese industry

Cheese making has an extensive history, dating back thousands of years. Cheese was mentioned in Greek mythology, images were carved on Egyptian tombs, and documentation of its widespread existence throughout the Roman Empire was well recorded.

The most common story of cheese origin, but by no means the only, is accidental discovery. Back in the day, milk was transported in shepherds’ pouches made from the lining of calf stomachs. Rennet, an enzyme found in the lining, caused the transported milk to curdle and separate into curds and whey. Upon this discovery, the beginning of cheese history was formed.
