Denver, CO (March 26, 2018) – The Safe Cheesemaking Hub, a project of the American
Cheese Society, was honored last week with a 2018 PR News Nonprofit Award, winning the
Website category.

The PR News Nonprofit Awards celebrate nonprofit campaigns and communicators making a
positive, lasting impact on the world. On March 20, the top campaigns were honored at a
luncheon at Washington, D.C.'s National Press Club. The winners were judged on the impact of
the campaigns they've led, and on the positive influence they've had on society at large.

ACS’s Safe Cheesemaking Hub, launched in March 2017, is an easily searchable “one-stop
shop” for resources, research, training, and tools to enhance industry food safety practices. The
site is largely focused on the needs of small- to mid-sized producers in the United States; it also
includes resources for the retailers who sell their products. Access to the site is available
publicly, as the resources compiled on the site are vital to the continued health and growth of
the American artisan and specialty cheese industry. In 2017, the Safe Cheesemaking Hub was
also honored with a Silver “Power of A” Award from the American Society of Association
Executives for The Power to Prepare for the Future. Visit the site at

Nora Weiser, ACS Executive Director, says of the honor, “When industry members have access
to current, practical, educational resources and tools, all areas of the industry are stronger as a
result. The Safe Cheesemaking Hub has proven to be a vital tool in ensuring that cheese
professionals are prepared for an increasingly food safety-focused future. A lot of hard work
went into this project, and we are honored that PR News recognized the site for its impact,
influence, and contribution to the industry.”

This is the second PR News Nonprofit Award for ACS. In 2017, ACS won in the Marketing
category for its “Cheese Party” campaign to raise the visibility of American artisan cheese
among consumers and industry members, while supporting the work of the American Cheese
Education Foundation to grow artisan cheese awareness, appreciation, and education.
