I live in a remote area of Canada and don't have access to a kosher market to buy cheese. There are many European imports in the local super, and I was wondering if there is a list of cheeses which are kosher without a printed hechsher from EU or elsewhere (the UK, Australia, etc). From my time in Europe, I found that many communities had lists of kosher products one could buy in the super without a printed hechsher.

Thanks.

    You might want to try the London Beth Din. If any of the products are from the UK or surrounding areas, you should be able to find it on their "Kosher Product Search". If not, you can always call them and see what they know.

    OK, here's either a comment or answer: Check out this website that lists all kinds of cheeses in the USA. Surely some must make it up north: kcheese.com/US.htm

Per http://www.chabad.gr/templates/articlecco_cdo/aid/66080/jewish/Kosher-products-list.htm:

Cheese: TYRAS-OLYMPUS all cheeses; TERRA AEOLICA (ΑΙΟΛΙΚΗ ΓΗ) (Lesvos) feta cheeses. (Supervised by Rabbi Silver - Kosher Technical Konsultants) Note: It is not Chalav Israel.

    Not chalav Yisrael but kosher? Why, does Greece have laws like America, and rely on Rav Moshe's ruling? Or is feta like butter? +1 anyway, nice find.

    (Hm, no, feta's being like butter wouldn't suffice, as I see that Olympus sells many kinds of cheese.)
