Latteria cheeses, generally cow milk tommes made in Northern Italian village dairy-cooperatives, are among the most historically indigenous cheeses of Northern Italy. Latteria di Capra is a more recent adaptation to this tradition, using 100% goat milk.
Formaggi Ciresa is a leading affinatore of Lombardia. Their work includes selection, aging, packaging, and distribution of cheese, particularly the traditional cheese families of Lombardia: Stracchino, Gorgonzola, Latteria & fresh cheese.
Founded in 1927, their multi-generational relationships with cheesemakers allow for incomparable representation of these regional styles, in addition to PDO cheeses throughout Italy.
