The Salzarulo family began its tradition in the Latticini business in the town of Lioni, Italy over 100 years ago. In 1980, the family brought its fine art of cheese-making to Brooklyn, New York where it created a name for itself making fresh, whole milk mozzarella cheese. Within the past three decades, the Salzarulo’s have transformed their small neighborhood family business into a nationally renowned manufacturer and distributor of fresh mozzarella products in the United States.
The family embraces their Italian tradition and are committed to their beliefs and authentic cheesemaking practices. They take pride in perfecting and delivering a simple food ingredient that they know as, “the Mozzarella”. Everything they do is done from the heart; it is a lifestyle for them. They maintain quality through consistency and freshness and bring the richness of Italian cooking that they’ve known from their childhood to your table – always striving for product excellence.
Today, Lioni is still a family owned and operated business that holds onto old Italian values and traditions. The Salzarulo family remains hands-on each day to ensure that their products continue to be of the highest quality and consistency delivering a traditional fresh mozzarella product as they know it be.
