Consumers today want great tasting quality pizzas, served fast, made from natural ingredients. The perfect pizza has delicious flavour, texture and abundant fresh toppings. Every slice should have an appealing and flavoursome balance of ingredients and so should the pizza as a whole.
Mozzarella Cheese is often said to be the “soul of the pizza”, the star that harmonises the flavours.

No other ingredient brings a pizza together quite like mozzarella – and its star power stems from its production process. While mozzarella was traditionally made using water buffalo’s milk, today’s cheese is usually made with cow’s milk. Once the whey is separated from the curd, the curd undergoes a cooking and stretching process, delivering a cheese simply made for pizza. Mozzarella delivers a unique mouthfeel while holding a pizza’s ingredients together, and its creamy, mild flavour complements those other ingredients, rather than overpowering them. But it’s mozzarella’s famous stretch and melt that really deliver an authentic, memorable dining experience for customers – because nothing compares to the moment that first slice of pizza is lifted off the plate revealing its supreme stretch.
