BelGioioso, a US-based manufacturer of Italian cheeses, has entered into an agreement to acquire Polly-O from Kraft Heinz and Lactalis, according to a Deli Market News report.
The acquisition of Polly-O, an Italian cheese brand, will expand BelGioioso’s portfolio and add to its existing Casaro brand range.
Founded in 1899, Polly-O is known for its ricotta, mozzarella and string cheeses.
