Specialty Foods Operator

Mmm, Swiss cheese. We produce more than 100 million pounds of award winning, all natural Swiss cheese each year. We love what we do and, of course, we love to #makeitswiss. Yeah, we know, we’re cheesy.

But we don’t just make cheese! Whey is a by-product of cheese-making that forms from the curds produced during the heating and cooling processes. Years ago, that whey used to be discarded as a waste product of the cheese-making process. Can you imagine?

Whey is now a well-known ingredient packed with protein and essential amino acids. It is used to make protein powders, infant formula and more. We save and process all of the whey created in our cheese-making process and offer lactose and whey protein concentrate products.

Do you find the cheese-making process interesting? You could be a part of our award-winning team! Apply for a job as a specialty foods team today!
