Cheese Makers in Melbourne

Our obsession for making traditional Italian style cheese is only matched by your obsession for delicious tasting cheese, making us the perfect match. From making traditional ricotta over a wood fire in his back yard for his three sons, to making cheeses
for his neighbours, friends and then the local continental grocery, Mauro and his wife Carmela used their skills to support their family. Unbeknown to them, those humble beginnings would turn into one of Australia’s finest cheese manufacturing businesses.

Featured Product: Burrata

Floridia Burrata is its own, very special type of cheese. Rich and buttery in flavour without being too indulgent.

  • “My name is Alex Brosca and along with my family we have been operating Papa Gino's Restaurant in Carlton for 46 years. In this time we have only ever used the Floridia Cheese Company to supply the cheese used on our pizzas and pasta. Over the years other companies have approached us but we have always dismissed them because of the quality of both product and service that Floridia supplies. I know that the Montalto family take great pride in the production of their cheeses and are always striving for improvement. I would certainly recommend the Floridia Cheese Company to any business wishing to find a strong and reliable supplier of quality cheese.”
    Alex Brosca, Restaurant Owner at Papa Gino's
  • “Floridia Cheese has been supplying our company for over 40 Years. Our customers have come to recognise the Floridia brand over these years and continue purchasing this brand for their consistent quality in their products.”
    C. Madafferi, Manager at Mediterranean Wholesalers PTY. LTD.
