V&V Supremo Foods, Inc., a producer of authentic Mexican cheese, crema, chorizo, and maker of Chihuahua Brand Quesadilla Cheese, has announced the acquisition of Mill Creek Cheese, capitalizing on the continued growth momentum.
Mill Creek Cheese, a family-owned cheese plant, has been manufacturing cheese since 1891, making it the oldest operating cheese plant in Iowa County, Wisconsin.
In a press release, the company said Mill Creek Cheese customers could expect to continue enjoying high-quality cheese products from V&V Supremo, another family-owned business with decades of experience delighting customers and distributors alike.
The purchase of the new facility will allow V&V Supremo to increase production to meet the growing demand for its products, strengthening V&V Supremo’s portfolio of offerings for its distributors and their consumers.
“This acquisition is a very important step in our growth strategy. It will help us meet the growing demand for our products and expand our presence in key markets,” said Gilberto Villaseñor II, Chief Visionary Officer of V&V Supremo Foods, Inc.
As V&V Supremo Foods, Inc. continues to grow, it offers an expanded product catalog of cheeses and other Mexican specialty grocery products to a vast audience.
V&V Supremo Foods, Inc. was founded in 1964 by Mexican natives Gilberto Villaseñor, Sr., and Ignacio Villaseñor and is now one of the nation’s oldest family-run Hispanic food businesses.
The historic Back-of-the-Yards neighborhood on Chicago’s south side was the original location of V&V Supremo’s modest beginnings. Operations quickly moved to the Mexican American neighborhood of Pilsen near the bustling South Water Market, which brought in retailers and restaurateurs from all over the Midwest. As the company grew, so did the product offerings.
V&V Supremo started with a single authentic Mexican-style cheese. Currently, offerings include a full line of cheeses, dairy, and meat products servicing the retail, foodservice, and industrial communities.
