Lioni Latticini
Fresh Mozzarella

In the nearby town of Union, New Jersey, the Lioni family stretch their fresh curds to great lengths for these fist-sized parcels of mozz. After generations in business, they've mastered this art of fresh 'pasta-filata' or pulled curd style of cheese-making. The result is delicate and milky - a perfect way to showcase the high quality cows' milk they use from upstate NY. Very fresh and definitely pasteurized. The most authentico choice we've found this side of the Atlantic, ideal with fresh basil and Murray's Italian olive oil. This mozzarella is lightly-salted, to bring out the full flavor of the milk.

Meet The Maker

A Murray’s staple, Lioni mozzarella is an essential in any kitchen. 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 cheese-making artistry to Brooklyn where it created a name for itself making fresh, whole milk mozzarella. The Salzarulo’s have transformed their small neighborhood business into a nationally renowned manufacturer and distributor of fresh mozzarella in the United States.
