Quick Overview

Over one hundred years ago, Giuseppe Pollio came to the United States bringing with him a recipe for success - his family's old world tradition of Italian cheesemaking.

The Pollio centennial celebration marks 100 years of quality cheese-making and heritage since he came through Ellis Island and set up his ricotta and mozzarella kettles on the beach at Coney Island, in Brooklyn, NY.

Today, Pollio Italian Cheese Company is one of the country's largest producers of Italian cheeses, offering a full line of premium Italian cheeses and snacks. Making almost 100 million pounds of premium Italian cheese each year, POLLY-O® still makes cheese with the classic Italian techniques mastered by Giuseppe Pollio a century ago.
