Ayu Linggih is the founder and cheesemaker of Rosalie Cheese.
Growing up in Jakarta, Ayu went to Australia to study Food Science Technology in the University of Queensland. Passionate by fermented food and noticed that the demand for natural cheese in is Indonesia increasing, she started to produced cheese back in 2013
Creative and curious, she managed to produce cheese in a place where it’s not the culture to eat it. From opening her venture back in Jakarta, she moved to Bali in 2017 to get the business fully licensed.
With Rosalie Cheese, Ayu wants to produce a local high-quality natural cheese with a medium price range. The aim is to become a local competitor in a place where cheeses are mostly imported and used to be very expensive. Now, most of Rosalie Cheese’s products are available in hotels, restaurants and major retail stores.
Rosalie's team consisted of passionate and highly motivated workers, taking care of cheeses and snacks from production to delivery.
Most of the employees are unskilled women in our neighborhood, earning less than minimum wages. We have hired several of them and trained them to be a professional cheesemaker. We equipped them with the skills to improve their livelihood and provide them with a better income.
Meet the wonderful Rosalie girls!
