Sargento Foods has been a leader in cheese since 1953. We created the world's first successful prepackaged sliced and shredded natural cheeses. Today, we manufacture and market amazing shredded, sliced and snack natural cheese products, as well as ingredients. Our third-generation family owners live to serve local communities and employees, who are part of the Sargento Family.
