A "Käsekaiser" for his life’s work

The international film industry has the Oscar. The Austrian cheese industry has its Käsekaiser – the highest award for exceptional deeds. Gerhard Woerle was bestowed with a special prize at the Käsekaiser Gala in November 2012. Agrarmarkt Austria awarded him the honorary Käsekaiser for his life’s work. It paid tribute to his tireless commitment to turning the family-run company into one of the largest private cheese factories in the country, and for all his years of work for local cheese and cheesemaking.
