Kapiti Kikorangi, meaning sky blue in Maori, is a Kiwi blue cheese produced by Kapiti Brands NZ Ltd (a subsidiary of Fonterra). Kapiti Kikorangi Triple Cream Cheese has a golden curd and a rich texture with blue veins distributed evenly throughout. The buttery texture divulges a full-flavoured, savoury taste to tantalize the taste buds. As it ages, the flavour continues to build up, intensifying by the day. Kikorangi showcases a perfect balance of acid and sweetness as it rounds off a smooth creamy finish amidst a piquant taste.

This creamy cheese has proven itself worthy of many awards including “Champion of Champions” at Cuisine NZ Champions of Cheese Awards.
