Catanese Classic Cheese has much to offer from everyday workhorse cheeses to the rare and seasonally produced. While we are proud of our entire catalog of cheese, we take great pride in partnering with the local, small family run farms. Every artisan has a story share and we truly enjoy bringing these local gems to the market for all to try!

In addition to our local cheese products, we have built an impressive Air Ship program with cheeses from both France and Italy that are hand selected buy our partners abroad. If processed cheeses are what you are looking for, we have a clean label cheese processing program that uses no mold inhibitors or anticaking agents. We can produce custom blends, retail cut & wrap wedges, cheese cubes, as well as grated, shredded, and shaved cheeses.

We work with both European and domestic producers dedicated to animal husbandry and sustainable farming who craft small batch cheeses using old world methods in modern settings. We are continually looking for new partners committed to these beliefs.
