Gouda Cheese Shop - Tauranga

Going Dutch

gouda cheese There are three Gouda Cheese Shops. One is in Cameron Road in Tauranga; the others in the Rototuna and Hillcrest in Hamilton. Gouda Cheese (pronounced “howda”) is the mainstay, of the shops. They stock cheese they make themselves, cheese imported from Holland, some Mercer Cheese gouda and organic cheese. It’s young, or it’s aged and you can try it before you buy it, if you’re not sure which you’d like.

But that’s not all. There are more types of liquorice than you imagined existed (unless you’re Dutch) along with a range of dry goods from Holland, Germany and Switzerland. Sauces, cakes, confectionary, soups, vegetables, Indonesian spices and seasonings, you could be in Europe. You can buy clogs at the Rototuna shop along with Delft ceramics.

This is a family business with Addy running Hillcrest, Hans looking after Rototuna and Brian managing Tauranga.

The Gouda Cheese Shops have salamis, sausages, smoked cured fish and rollmops. They are the quintessential Dutch food suppliers in Hamilton and Tauranga.

  • Sorry, but it's not quite “howda”. Replace the “h” with a “ch” as in the Scottish “loch” (e.g. Loch Ness) and you're almost there! :)
