A little bit about us

WAIMATA CHEESE COMPANY is a small family owned and operated business that has been making cheese in Gisborne for over twenty years.

Many of our cheese making team have been with us since the beginning and now the next generation are stepping up wanting to expand our range of cheeses and find new markets.

We hope you can taste our rich fertile soils and salt laden sea breeze pastures along with our pride and passion in every mouthful.
