A mild, semi-soft, part skim cheese made from cow’s milk. Jarlsberg® is famous around the world for its characteristic mild, sweet and nutty taste and its large round holes. Jarlsberg® is such a wonderfully versatile cheese - whether you buy it as a regular staple for sandwiches, a complement for salads, a tasty

addition to your cheese board or as an irresistible snack! It is available with or without its distinctive rind, either cut to suit your needs (wedges, slices, chunks), as a grab-and-go cheese (cheese snacks and cheese crisps) or as a mighty 10kg (22 lb) wheel. Jarlsberg® is the #1 specialty cheese brand in the USA.


Jarlsberg® Lite has the same mild, nutty flavor as regular Jarlsberg® with 50% less fat and 30% fewer calories, than regular Swiss cheese. This low-fat variety of Jarlsberg® original has the characteristic large round holes, with a lower fat content – perfect for those days when you crave the sweet, nutty

delights of Jarlsberg® but need to watch your diet! You can add flair to your sandwiches, wraps and recipes without the calories. Jarlsberg® Lite is available in slices, chunks and as a grab–and-go cheese (lite minis). Jarlsberg® Lite is a great alternative for a lighter recipe as it has very good meltability.

Special Reserve

This exclusive variety of Jarlsberg® is ripened for a minimum of 12 months. The ageing process retains the characteristic flavors and aromas, but intensifies them to produce a stronger, more robust cheese. It’s a delicacy on its own and an excellent choice for cheese platters or as a

finger food for buffets. It’s also well worth experimenting with as a cooking ingredient, where a stronger flavor is required to give your dish some real zing. Jarlsberg® Special Reserve is available exclusively at Whole Foods Market, nationwide.


If you haven’t tried Hickory Smoked Jarlsberg® yet, then you’re in for a special treat! Like most traditional smoked foods it has a darker, browner surface and a piquant, smoky taste. It makes an excellent sandwich filling and is the perfect addition to many hot and cold dishes.

Jarlsberg® Smoked will liven up any after dinner cheese board, and if your guests are new to its smoky charms, it may even succeed in interrupting the most in-depth conversation – for a few seconds at least!
