Date:9/22/2009

BEEMSTER, The Netherlands, Sept. 22 /PRNewswire/ -- Beemster, the Netherlands' leading premium gourmet Dutch cheese company, announced today that it has joined in the fight against breast cancer with the launch of a limited-edition Pink Ribbon Vlaskaas cheese, available now through the end of October.

Fifty cents from every pound of Pink Ribbon cheese purchased will benefit Susan G. Komen for the Cure(R), the world's largest breast cancer organization funding life-saving breast cancer research and community health programs. Beemster has pledged to donate a minimum of $10,000 to help find a cure for breast cancer.

"We are proud to contribute to such an inspirational organization and strive to help find a cure for this prevalent disease," said Michael Blum, Sales and Marketing Manager at Beemster. "The Pink Ribbon cheese promotion provides an opportunity for our customers to get involved in this important cause."

Beemster Vlaskaas is one of the newer additions to the company's line of Premium Gourmet Dutch Cheeses. When translated, Vlaskaas means Flax cheese, originally made for workers to enjoy during the Dutch harvest festival.

The cheese can be purchased for between $10.99 and 16.99 a pound at participating specialty stores as well as major U.S. food chains including H-E-B, Central Market, Safeway, Lunds/Byerlys, Schnucks, Bristol Farms, Fairway, A&P, Fred Meyer's, QFC and Smiths.

About Beemster

Beemster is an artisan Dutch cheese company in North Holland. The cheese is made exclusively in the Beemster Polder, located 20 feet below sea level. To this day, the original recipe remains the foundation for hand crafting every wheel of cheese. Great attention is paid to the cheese's quality, starting with the treatment of the cows, which graze only on pesticide-free pastures that contain rare blue sea clay. The minerals in the clay result in cheeses with a softer, creamier texture. Beemster's long history as Holland's most renowned cheesemaker has earned it the honor of being a supplier to the Royal Court of The Netherlands. For more information visit http://www.beemster.us/
