Whey sorbet from Ostmakeriet won innovation award

The cheese factory (Ostmakeriet) on Rindö won the competition ‘Ät!Stockholm 2021’ with a whey sorbet, made of the by-product from the company’s cheese production.

‘Ät!Stockholm’ is a food innovation competition that focus on new, sustainable, and innovative food products based on Swedish raw materials. The competition took place at the end of November and the jury gave the first prize to Ostmakeriet’s whey sorbet. The jury’s motivation was:

– An unused raw material gets new life, and a beloved food gets a real refreshment. Through good collaborations and innovative gastronomy, the producers show the way to the food of the future. A recipe that can inspire others to new variations – and the potential to hit big. A refreshing innovation with a wonderful texture.

The competition was organized by the Stockholm Region, the County Administrative Board of Stockholm, Södertälje Municipality and Project MatLust. The target group for the competition is small and medium-sized food companies. Read more about Ostmakeriet HERE
