How we rate feta cheese

Our review compares feta cheese on customer satisfaction, so you can find out what other Aussies think about the compared brands before you go ahead with a purchase. Think of it as like asking hundreds of your closest mates which feta cheese they think is best!

Canstar Blue surveyed 409 Australians for their feedback on the feta cheese(s) they’ve purchased from a supermarket or grocer and eaten in the last three months. Note: this does not include independent delis.

  • The outcomes reported in these ratings are measured via accredited research panels managed by Qualtrics.

Respondents rate their satisfaction with their feta cheese brand(s) from zero to ten, where zero is extremely dissatisfied and ten is extremely satisfied. Brand satisfaction was rated by respondents on the following criteria:
  • Overall satisfaction: measures consumer satisfaction with a feta brand as an individual score NOT a combined total of all criteria.
  • Taste: the feta cheese tasted authentic and matched the flavour description on the packaging (i.e. Greek-style, Danish, etc.).
  • Texture: the feta cheese was rich and had the expected consistency.
  • Value for money: the cost is reasonable for the quality and quantity of the feta cheese.
  • Packaging convenience: the feta cheese packaging made it easy to dispense and store (i.e. came in a resealable packet, etc.).
  • Variety & range: the feta cheese brand offered a variety of product options.

The winning brand is the one that receives the highest Overall satisfaction rating once all the scores from the Overall satisfaction criteria are combined and averaged.

  • Overall satisfaction is asked as a specific question and represents an individual measure, not a combined total of all criteria.
  • When we cannot determine a clear winner from the criteria for the Overall satisfaction rating, we will then look at the other criteria measured in the rating.
    • The brand with the highest number of five-star ratings within the supporting criteria will become the five-star recipient in overall satisfaction, and thus win the award. If a clear leader still cannot be determined from the supporting criteria, joint winners will be declared.

Brands must have received at least 30 responses to be included, so not all brands available in the market have been compared in this survey. The brands rated in this survey are listed below in order of best overall satisfaction.

  • Lemnos
  • South Cape

Different types of feta

Did you know there are several types of feta, each offering a unique taste? Here are the most common:

  • Australian feta: a happy medium when compared to other types of feta in terms of saltiness and creaminess. It’s typically made using cow’s milk.
  • Greek feta: boasts a richer flavour than other types of feta, such as French and Bulgarian, and is sharp, tangy and briny.
  • French feta: provides a creamier and softer consistency and doesn’t taste as sharp as Greek feta.
  • Bulgarian feta: doesn’t necessarily need to be added into dishes because it stands out with a creamy texture and a saltier flavour than other types of feta.
  • American feta: tastes mostly tangy and has a crumbly texture.
  • Israeli feta: has a creamy texture and is not as salty compared to some other types of feta. It’s typically made from sheep’s milk.
  • Danish feta: has a mild taste and is fairly creamy. It’s usually made from cow’s milk.
