15 years have passed since Quescem's company was founded in May 2006 in Spain and they still have the same enthusiasm, passion and commitment as on the first day.
The idea of making cream cheese by applying traditional Cebreiro cheese (a Galician traditional cheese) production technologies with the use of buttermilk as an ingredient emerged in 2005 in the Dairy Products Classroom of the University of Santiago (USC), and led to the founding of Innolact SL in May 2006 with 17 partners and 2 employees.
As with all great adventures, the beginning wasn't easy. It was an innovative project launched by a group of entrepreneurs who were entering a very traditional sector, the dairy sector, and a mature market in the cheese market. Their efforts were rewarded with several awards that same year, such as the prize in the 7th USC Contest for Innovative Business Projects, being named the 1st Technology-Based Dairy Company by the Galician Regional Government, and being designated a NeoTec company by the CDTI.
