1945 (incorporated as Arthur Schuman, Inc. in 1946)
Arthur Schuman, along with sons Jerome and Howard, started the business with a passion for bringing the best Italian cheese to the American market. In the early days, the three traveled back and forth from New York to Italy, bringing home the best cheese they could find. With this, an Italian cheese brokerage and importing business was born.
Thanks to an adaptive and innovative culture, Schuman Cheese stays ahead in a dynamic industry and proactively anticipates the needs of its customers. Today, the business is proud to work with diverse network of partner cheese companies and customers around the globe.
To enhance everyday eating experiences with the highest quality cheese.
