A cream cheese for every taste and demand


We currently offer an extensive variety of functional cream cheeses of the highest quality, a variety that we started with our Regular Cream Cheese. This initial formula was soon joined by varieties such as Light Cream Cheese with a lower percentage of fat and 40percent less calories than a normal cream cheese; and the 0 Lactose Cream Cheese special lactose variety for lactose intolerant who wish to take care of their digestions. Also thought about the growing concern for the origin of the ingredients of the products that are consumed, we have created the Organic Cream Cheese variety, a cream cheese made with 100percent organic fresh milk, free of GMOs and artificial additives.


On the other hand, the hotel, catering and pastry professional, requires differentiated products with better functionality for culinary applications. In response to this need, we have designed cream cheeses with high performance, which support different forms of cooking (including direct frying or freezing), easy to use and that reduce waste in the kitchen. In addition to our Natural cream cheese, we have an American-style Original Recipe ream cheese with a high texture and consistency. Cream Cheese Plus Regular, a cream cheese designed for cooking that combines high resistance to extreme temperatures of cold / heat and that is easily dosed without any waste. Culinary Yoghurt, a yogurt designed for cooking and with a very consistent and stable texture, similar to that of a cream cheese and that will transfer to all your preparations the taste of yogurt. To facilitate and reduce the time of preparations that include cheeses and reduce shrinkage when debarking and melting, we have designed a cream cheese with Manchego Cheese Spread and a Cream Cheese with Goat Cheese.


Finally, also meeting the demands of the final consumer to find a diverse selection of products in the market, we have worked to expand our family of cream cheeses available for direct purchase. This is the case of our range of cream cheeses with flavors, in which we find cream cheeses with another type of cheese, such as the aforementioned cream cheese with Manchego cheese spread or with Blue Cheese; and the cream cheeses with other ingredients such as cream cheese with Garlic and Herbs or the variety Pink Pepper. We also offer a variety of cream cheese made with Goat Milk and with all the flavor and nutritional benefits of goat cheese in a convenient ready-to-use tub.
