Why Grande

Your customers crave authentic Italian food. It’s what keeps them coming back. Grande delivers all-natural Italian cheeses that offer the consistency and taste they know and love.

Learn about our quality

Food shows, foodie blogs and magazines have driven a trend for quality food, educating customers about what makes something taste exceptional and raising expectations. Natural ingredients, a food’s origins and even a company’s values are all part of choosing what and where they eat. It’s what drives us to ensure we’re delivering the quality you and your customers are looking for.

Proven Performance

When you’re delivering consistently great pizzas with a delicious cheese, your customers take notice. It’s no coincidence that 6 of the last 10 of Pizza Today’s “Independent Pizzerias of the Year” winners are long-time Grande customers.

Testimonials

Did you know?

100 pounds of milk makes only 10 pounds of cheese. The rest of the milk is whey and Grande Custom Ingredients Group uses that whey to create innovative ingredients used in a wide variety of applications like protein bars and yogurt.

We're a Lot Like You

Grande is an advocate of independent operators. We understand what it takes: the late nights, good times, and the challenging times. We grew from independent roots to where we are today. We speak your language and we know what it takes to make it (and we don’t just mean delicious cheese).
