Our Smoked Mozzarella is a favorite for many, and has quite an interesting story. It all began in the late 80s when the Rumiano Cheese purchased the "Landmark Cheese" (our raw cheese line) from RW Knudsen. When we obtained Landmark, it came with some packaging equipment, inventory and a metal box slightly larger than a refrigerator. Originally, the new equipment was used to smoke the Landmark brand raw cheddar until Jack Gibson (former Rumiano Cheese innovator and team leader) asked, why not smoke mozzarella? Little did they know it would begin to out-sell the smoked raw cheddar and the classic was born.
