Looking for kosher Mexican cheese: Asadero aka Oaxaca

This is a popular Mexican cheese and I'm trying to find if anybody makes a kosher product. I've searched the Internet and cannot find anything. I know it's a long shot, but worth a try.

Thanks

    I don't know that you can find these brands but this may help.

    The Sephardi community in Mexico -

    From the Comunidad Ashkenazi de Mexico -
    QUESOS (LÁCTEO

    )

    QUESO COTTAGE SANTA CLARA
    QUESO EDAM SANTA CLARA
    QUESO MANCHEGO SANTA CLARA
    QUESO MORBIER SANTA CLARA
    QUESO OAXACA SANTA CLARA
    QUESO PANELA SANTA CLARA
    QUESO PROVOLONE SANTA CLARA

    NOTA:
    Los Quesos Sta. Clara supervisado por nuestro Rabino, solamente están autorizados los que llevan nuestro SELLO DE KASHRUT sin este sello ningún queso esta autorizado, incluso los suaves como el queso cottage; ya que nuestras partidas se elaboran con mashguiaj en todo el proceso y utilizando solamente ”cuajo” Kosher así también se hacen partidas Jalav Israel con su respectivo sello identificador.

    For some reason, I cannot find the website of the Alef Alef, the Ashkenazi Kehila's certifying vaad. Their information was very comprehensive.

    Hope this is of some use.

      I've seen Kosher Oaxaca cheese in both Mexico City and in the Costco in Cancun.

        Wow, nice to know it exists but I'm not planning any trips to Mexico in the near future. Thanks, I appreciate your help.

          If you live near a good Mexican bodega or mercado you may be able to find the brands listed below. I always go to the Mexican kashrut websites because, although an item may have a heksher, it won't always be printed on the package. The certifying agencies list the products they supervise on their websites.
