The queseo is common in a number of far-flung mountain barangays of the town of Compostela. It is creamy white and a bit salty to the taste. While some queseo makers use machines to create the product, there are still a number who use the traditional method of making this unique product. Many of the traditional queseo makers learned the process from their elders. It has become a tradition for many families living in these mountain barangays.
There are a number of eateries selling the queseo of Compostela. These eateries are typically located close to or at the public market itself. There are also some residents of Compostela who go around and sell the cheese in and around Compostela. Others even reach as far as Danao City to sell their wares.
