NIVA ORIGINAL

Slovak roquefort - is a delicious ripening cheese with strong blue mold Penicilium roqueforti, which has a typical marble structure of blue molds on a creamy white surface. It´s classic production is still handmade throughout the entire process, from the filling of the curd to the tubs, molding, salting, maturing and packaging, which makes each cheese loaf unique and under constant control. They only mature in a special store on wooden troughs which takes at least 3 to 5 weeks, when the strong mold grows in the cheese. However, the maturation period of the cheese may last up to 6 months, during which the cheese becomes softer, obtaining a more spreadable consistency and a more spicy taste, especially sought out by gourmet.

All blue cheese of our company such as NIVA ORIGINAL and NIVA ORIGINAL GOLD are under the trademark NIVA ORIGINAL. They are made according to a traditional, almost seventy-year recipe from Hlohovec, exclusively from Slovak milk, mainly from farmers from the Tekov region. Thanks to all these parameters, NIVA ORIGINAL cheese has an unmistakable delicious, salty, spicy taste that is suitable for use in both cold and warm recipes.
