GREEN BAY, WIS. — BelGioioso Cheese Inc. is investing $7 million to reinvigorate the Polly-O cheese brand. The investment follows a $3 million upgrade to a Polly-O manufacturing plant in Campbell, NY, and the development of a new distribution center in Glenville, NY.

BelGioioso acquired Polly-O in 2021. The company said the investments will lead to better service and a longer shelf life for Polly-O products, through improved operations and production planning.

“If you grew up on the East Coast, Polly-O ricotta and mozzarella are certainly part of your childhood’s family lunches at your grandmother’s house,” said Gaetano Auricchio, president of BelGioioso. “We will continue honoring that tradition and plan on growing the Polly-O line, introducing new, innovative and high-quality cheeses into the dairy section.”

BelGioioso is a family-owned and operated company that specializes in artisan Italian cheesemaking.
