Simonsberg Rebrands As President Cheese

Président, one of the world’s leading cheese brands, was founded in 1968 in France, by a family committed to crafting the most delectable cheeses for all. Today, Président is sold in over 147 countries and produced in more than 100 factories, globally. The brand is enjoyed and respected worldwide, which is a testament to Président’s passion for cheese-making, its roots in tradition, and its expertise handed down from one generation to another for over 80 years.


Now, Président looks forward to sharing this passion and know-how as they pair with a local brand also rich in heritage and tradition.Simonsberg is becoming Président. Président and Simonsberg are both masters of cheese and have experience going back for many years, but apart from the experience they most importantly share the same values and traditions.

Local cheese lovers can rest assured that this is merely a name change and the products’ taste and quality will remain exactly the same.  The award-winning range of cheeses will continue to be manufactured locally in the Cape, making use of the same quality ingredients and age old cheese making processes – It’s the same great taste, just with a new name.


The new packaging, featuring both Simonsberg and Président logos, will be in-store by the end of September. The range will continue to consist of the following SKU’s:

Product Pack size


Feta 200g R   31.99
400g R   44.99
Cream Cheese 230g R   33.99
Camembert/Brie 125g R   29.99
Blue Cheese 100g R   26.99
Cheddar/Gouda/Edam 300g R   44.99

Thanks for the awesome cheese board, and super sharp cheese knife too. You guys rock! I’m busy enjoying my medium fat Smoked Salmon Cream Cheese with the new Doritos Sour Cream and Mild Chili that just arrived at my door. Top tip, it’s a match made in Heaven!

    We cannot get Simonsberg Mature Gouda in our area anymore, not even under the new brand President/Simonsberg.
    In our opinion this was the best cheese one could get in SA. Will this be sold again in Mossel bay in future?

      That’s odd. I surely hope so, it’s a great product!
