Our History

At Queijaria Guilherme we make fine cheeses…

Located in the middle of Baixo Alentejo, in Monte Vale de Faia, near Serpa, Queijaria Guilherme (Guilherme’s cheese factory) began its activity in 2001, following a family tradition in the artisanal manufacture of cheese.

This ancestral wisdom was complemented by the provision of facilities, cutting-edge technology, safety certifications, high quality standards and adequate human resources that enabled it to achieve sustainable growth at all levels in order to become a benchmark in its field of activity.
