Why Wisconsin is the mozzarella cheese capital
We get it. "Mozzarella from Wisconsin" doesn't have the same ring to it as "mozzarella di bufala dall'Italia." But with something as important as cheese, you're not buying the accent, you're buying great taste.
Great taste, great freshness, great cheese. That's what you get with Wisconsin mozzarella cheese. That's what happens when one state is dedicated to making more flavors, varieties, and different types of cheese than anywhere else in the world.
See, in Wisconsin, we've been making cheese for 175 years – we achieved cheese-hood before we had statehood in America. Today, we make one quarter of all the cheese in America and nearly half of all artisan cheese. We have the only Master Cheesemaker program in the world apart from the one in Switzerland. We're the only state where cheesemakers have to get a license – because, come on, you can't just let everybody and their uncle make cheese. And we've won more awards for our cheese than anybody, anywhere – even more than those mighty fine cheesemakers in Italy.
So, mozzarella cheese from Wisconsin? You betcha.
