How we rate parmesan cheese

Our review compares parmesan 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 parmesan cheese they think is best!

Canstar Blue surveyed 497 Australians for their feedback on the packaged parmesan 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 parmesan 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 parmesan cheese brand as an individual score NOT a combined total of all criteria.
  • Taste: the parmesan cheese tasted authentic and matched the flavour description on the packaging (i.e. light, etc.).
  • Texture: the parmesan cheese was rich and had the expected texture.
  • Packaging convenience: the parmesan cheese packaging made it easy to dispense and store (i.e. came in a resealable packet, etc.).
  • Variety & range: the parmesan cheese brand offered a variety of product options.
  • Value for money: the cost is reasonable for the quality and quantity of the parmesan cheese.

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.

  • Woolworths
  • La Casa Del Formaggio
  • Mil Lel
  • Perfect Italiano
  • Coles
