You will find that together we are committed to understanding and growing your business.
Grande’s business model comprises three distinct business units, each focused on delivering unsurpassed products and services to their respective marketplace and business partners.

Grande’s milk for cheese and whey products is procured from dedicated producer dairies. Grande’s Milk Marketing team works intimately with these producer dairies to consistently meet and exceed the highest quality standards in the nation.
In developing long-term relationships with our producer dairies, we do more than simply purchase milk. We provide our partners with support from our labs, field staff, information and communications, and MMAP–our Milk Management Assistance Program–to assist each dairy in implementing leading-edge herd and operation techniques. This focus on the details translates into a truly world•class milk supply...and is the reason the Milk & Dairy Beef Quality Assurance Program approached Grande to be the pilot organization for their 5 Star Certification program.
The Foodservice Unit is where Grande originated, providing the finest Italian cheeses to independent pizzerias. Today, Grande is a known Advocate of the Independent pizzerias, partnering with restaurants across the country for growth and to better understand and address the business challenges they face daily. By providing Grande quality products that can help differentiate a menu, and delivering solutions that are tailored to the specific needs of restaurants across the country, Grande connects answers with proven results.
Grande’s Custom Ingredients Group (GCIG) delivers a portfolio of value-added whey products used to enhance the flavors and functionality of food products manufactured by numerous companies around the world.
Food scientists, along with the GCIG sales and marketing team, work directly with food manufacturers to create customer-specific business solutions derived from our value added whey products. Just as with our cheese, the whey we use starts with only natural, Grade A milk harvested daily from Grande producer dairies.
Across our entire business model, we are dedicated to bringing you an exceptional experience, providing value-added solutions designed to grow your business today and into the future.
