Belfiore Cheese Company is one of the few remaining small, family-owned cheese making operations in the Bay Area. All Belfiore products are made 100% naturally without any additives or preservatives. The operation was established in 1987 as one of first pioneers producing hand crafted Italian-style Mozzarella, Fior di Latte (or Fresh Mozzarella in water) here in America

In 1989, new owners, pursuing the same dreams of perfection in cheese making, took over the small operation and continued the same traditional cheese making techniques with a passion to preserve the genuine quality and homemade style that has become the signature of the Belfiore Cheese brand.

 In addition to winning many of the American Cheese Society awards in past years, the Wisconsin Cheesemakers Association awarded Belfiore the best domestic Feta made in America in 2002.
