Say cheese!

December marks South Australian Company, La Casa Del Formaggio’s 20th Anniversary.

La Casa Del Formaggio opened its doors in 1988 through the efforts of Gerardo and Rosa Cicchiello. Gerardo was raised in southern Italy and in 1964 he married Rosa and came to Adelaide, South Australia.

Over time, he longed for the food he grew up with in Italy and wanted to pass on the tradition of cheese making.

With this in mind and without any experience or formal business training, he opened a business in 1984 primarily selling home made continental products.

Rosa began to make Traditional Ricotta in her kitchen and sell it through the continental store.

The customer response was so overwhelming, the couple decided to focus on cheese making and in 1988 La Casa Del Formaggio was born.

Back in 1988, approximately 200 kilograms of fresh cheese was made by hand each week in a small kitchen. Today that has grown to over 30,000 kilograms each week.

La Casa’s cheese is manufactured in a purpose built first class facility with export capabilities at Glynde, South Australia.

La Casa’s Bocconcini products are currently the market leader in the Bocconcini category and are available in Coles, Woolworths, Independent Supermarkets and many gourmet delicatessens.
