Ricotta was born from cheesemakers ambition to find a use for the leftover whey from cheese production, and is in fact not technically cheese but instead, a cheese by-product. Made from whole pasteurized milk, this premium ricotta cheese offers a smooth, ultra-creamy texture with a noticeably fresh taste. Extremely versatile in its menu applications, this ricotta cheese is a great addition to any commercial kitchen.

Founded in 1916 by the Maggio brothers on a rented farm in Columbus, NJ before moving their operations to Philadelphia. By 1957, the Maggio cheese business was flourishing, due to its uncompromising standards to quality and dedication to producing "old world" flavored Italian cheese. Through this dedication, their company has grown, yet their high standards and premium quality cheese remain the same. Stock Maggio cheese in your establishment to bring a premium Italian taste to your signature foods!

    We use this Maggio Ricotta cheese in our lazagna and it is so good. So cheesy and flavorful. Its nice and creamy as well. And the price is great! When we went in store looking for Ricotta the prices were ridiculous for a small container so im so glad i found it here at a resonable price for what was needed!
    We use this for Italian dishes, but mainly for pesto pizza. To give the pesto body and add a cheese component to our homemade pizzas, we make the pesto and then fold in Maggio ricotta. We prep our homemade dough on the pizza sheet, then spread the ricotta-pesto mixture all over it, then add toppings, mainly tomato slices and onions. Keep it simple and the tastes will amaze you. I got the recipe from my aunt who grew up cooking and serving in her parents' Italian restaurant in NYC. Maggio is a very good standard staple brand for consistent flavor and good texture. It works extremely well in all our dinners and baking projects.
