Since its adoption in 1984, the Real California Cheese seal has taken the country by storm! Born from an effort to promote California's booming cheese industry, the seal's certification mark was created to assure consumers that they were purchasing natural cheese made in California exclusively with milk sourced from California's dairy families.

Twenty-five years later, the Real California Cheese seal can be found on many styles and varieties of cheese from California cheesemakers who qualify for and use it on their packaging. So whether you're shopping for a traditional favorite like Monterey Jack or a modern specialty cheese like Burrata, cheese lovers can find their favorite California cheeses by looking for the seal. Here's to another 25 years of enjoying and celebrating Real California Cheese!
