Dutch Edam Cheese (wedge cut)

Royal Hollandia

Edam is a semi-hard cheese that originated in the Netherlands, and is named after the town of Edam in the province of North Holland.  Edam is traditionally sold in spheres with a pale yellow interior and a coat of red paraffin wax. Edam ages and travels well, and does not spoil; it only hardens.



Royal Hollandia Edam cheese is well known for its shape with the red balls produced centuries ago. Edam Mild is many people’s favourite due to its very mild, subtle taste.

•Quintessential dutch cheese  that has a sweet and slightly nutty in flavour.
•Smooth and has creamy texture that is instantly recognisable with its distinct bright red wax coating


Suggested uses:

For more than 125 years FrieslandCampina has been involved in the production of authentic Dutch Cheeses. Although the company has changed considerably, starting out as a small business and becoming the largest cheese producer in the Netherlands, one thing has stayed the same: the Love of Cheese.



Friesland is a region in the north of the Netherlands known for its green meadows, blue skies, lakes and splendid Frisian dairy herds. Campina is a wooded region of grasslands and meadows in the south of the Netherlands, so named by the Romans more than 20 centuries ago.


Today both names – and their many brands – are known all over the globe
