The Salzarulo family began its tradition in the Latticini business in the town of Lioni, Italy many decades ago. In 1980, the family brought its fine art of cheese-making to Brooklyn, New York where it created a name for itself making fresh, whole milk mozzarella cheese. Within the past three decades, the Salzarulos have transformed their small neighboorhood, family business into a nationally renowned manufacturer and distributor of fresh mozzarella in the United States.
Today, Lioni is still a family owned and operated business that holds onto old Italian values and traditions, but now utilizes modern technology and computer-monitored equipment imported from Italy.
Lioni's success would not be a reality if it was not for the family's traditional cheese-making skills, its dedication to premium quality, innovative production methods, and its outstanding customer relations retained even in this fast-paced, modern world.
