About Finlandia

Pure Nordic Goodness

Finlandia proudly makes the very best tasting cheeses and butter.  For over a century, we’ve adhered to our Finnish roots of using the highest quality natural ingredients that are impeccably pure, to craft goodness that makes every meal…Simply Made Better.

Made from Some of the Purest Milk in the World

Finlandia is owned by Valio LTD, an innovative, global dairy company that began as a co-op of small family farms in Finland. As the world’s cleanest country, Finland is a place where the grass is green, the lakes are pristine, and where we tend to the world’s happiest cows. This makes for some of the purest milk on the planet, which is the secret to our delicious cheese and butter.

Discover the Award-Winning Taste

Because Finlandia uses some of the purest milk on the planet to make its butter and cheeses, our products are incredibly delicious — how can they not?! Enjoy our butter’s delightfully creamy flavor and smooth texture, which is perfect for baking, cooking and especially, eating. Enhance your meals with the distinctively rich, nutty and robust flavor of Finlandia’s Imported Swiss or the creamy, smooth and zesty flavor of our Imported Muenster. Or savor Keisarinna, which means ‘Empress’ in Finnish — it has a distinctly delicious flavor combination of creamy sweet Gouda and sharp Parmesan. But don’t take our word for it – we’ve earned the ‘Best in Class’ award for our Unsalted Butter and the ‘World Championship’ Award for our legendary Imported Swiss cheese among other recognitions.
