In 1954 the Saputo family brought the secrets of Italian cheese-making to Canada. We've been making since then a variety of italian and mediterranean style cheeses.
Our Grana Padano cheese is made in the Emilia-Romagna region of Italy. It is a granular hard-ripened cheese that is aged for 12 months to achieve its mild, delicately decadent flavour. This cheese is also lactose-free!
Aged for at least 24 months and produced in the Parma region of Italy, Parmigiano Reggiano cheese is hard-ripened and often referred to as the "King of Parmesan." Its rich, nutty taste derives from its milk, which comes from cows fed on a diet of alfalfa. This cheese is also lactose-free!
Made from carefully selected farm milk in Lodi, Italy, and aged for a minimum of 16 months, our hard-ripened cheese has a black rind that gives it an exclusive, savoury yet nutty flavour. This cheese is also lactose-free!
