Since 1953, Sargento® has been a company dedicated to innovation. From breakthrough packaging to unique product varieties, from industry firsts to industry bests, we do what we do in the name of love of 100% real, natural cheese.
Sargento founder Leonard Gentine set the industry standard for innovative packaging when he invented the first cheese vacuum pack. To this day, Sargento remains a state-of-the-art leader in keeping cheese fresh.
The world got a little more delicious when Sargento became the first company to market shredded cheese.
Sargento introduced peg-bar merchandising to the cheese section, which brought cheese packages to eye level and within easy reach of shoppers, changing the way cheese was sold in the supermarket.
Real cheese lovers everywhere rejoiced when Sargento was the first in the industry to use zippered resealable packaging that kept cheese fresh and easily accessible after opening. This feature resulted in double-digit growth of the shredded cheese category.
Calorie-conscious customers jumped for joy when Sargento introduced a new line of cheese that was lower in fat but just as delicious. Our Reduced Fat cheeses continue to be popular with shoppers today.
Sargento launched Recipe Blends, mixing different cheese varieties in the same package. This created delicious new flavors and made cooking with multiple cheeses more convenient than ever.
In another cheese industry first, Sargento unveiled the Slide-Rite® Advanced Closure System on its shredded cheese packages, making at-home storage quicker and easier.
Bistro Blends introduced the combination of delicious Sargento shredded cheeses and natural seasonings.
A new, exciting cheese blend was born when Artisan Blends® combined quality Sargento cheeses with distinct cheese from artisan cheese makers who use time-honored techniques.
