Cheese Pearls or Classic Grated?

We asked Ambrogio and Giuseppe, the chefs at the Latteria.

A story of milk and excellence since 1900.

For more than 120 years, Latteria Soresina has represented excellence in the supply chain which has milk as its sole, precious, raw material.

Thanks to our farming members, we have been producing milk, butter, and cheese of the highest quality for generations. Today as in the past, we continue to offer the finest in traditional dairy products: know-how that originated in the place we love most in the world, Soresina, in the green heart of the Po Valley and which from Soresina conquers the world every day.

Our flagship product? Grana Padano, of which Latteria Soresina is the world’s top producer. But also Butter, Provolone, and much, much more.
