At Sargento, our culinary and cheese experts understand the characteristics, performance properties and all the ingredient possibilities of all the cheeses we sell, and we’re structured to collaborate with you to ensure the success of your next assignment. Natural and process each have distinct attributes, and we can be your guide in selecting the specific cheese that suits your purposes.
Our research and development team is also expert at developing IQF products, dips & spreads and sauces. By understanding how to control the performance characteristics of an ingredient to align with your particular needs, we’re able to help you deliver on the precise specifications your next project calls for.
Customized packaging—portion control or bulk—for your manufacturing process is our specialty. We have a long history of packaging innovation – from marketing the first shredded natural cheese to introducing a process for vacuum packaging cheese that helps preserve freshness. We know the best tasting cheese and ingredients will lose flavor and freshness unless packaged appropriately and how crucial packaging is for you to achieve your best results.
Our packaging specialists and product development experts will collaborate with you to assess your needs and select packaging that suits your products and processes to help streamline the use of our ingredients and maximize manufacturing efficiencies.
