Union, NJ — Lioni Latticini, Inc, well-known producer of Fresh Mozzarella, Burrata and Bufala cheese products exhibited at the Summer Fancy Food Show where they featured their Caciocavallo di Salvatore, named in remembrance of Co-Founder Salvatore Salzarulo.

“This distinguished, handcrafted cheese was my father’s final deliverance, a personification of the sentiments and passion of his legacy. Says Teresa Conforte, Vice President of Marketing, Lioni Latticini.

The Salzarulo family proudly offers their Caciocavallo, a traditional stretched curd cheese made from the highest quality whole cow’s milk. Lioni sources this milk from local farms and ages the Caciocavallo for three months. They use age-old techniques to achieve a smooth semi-soft light-yellow cheese with a relatively thin rind that intensifies with age. This authentic, Italian, locally made cheese is mild with a buttery flavor and creamy texture.  

Sal Salzarulo, Lioni’s Production Manager explains, “My Uncle and I took on this project together because we believed that every household should enjoy this traditional mild Italian cheese as much as we did. He was extremely proud of it, so it is an absolute privilege to share this work by continuing to produce the most consistent and highest quality Caciocavallo in the United States.”
