The Salzarulo family began its tradition in the Latticini business in the town of Lioni, Italy many decades ago. In 1980, the family brought its fine art of cheese-making to Brooklyn, New York where it created a name for itself making fresh, whole milk mozzarella cheese. Within the past three decades, the Salzarulos have transformed their small neighboorhood, family business into a nationally renowned manufacturer and distributor of fresh mozzarella in the United States.

Today, Lioni is still a family owned and operated business that holds onto old Italian values and traditions, but now utilizes modern technology and computer-monitored equipment imported from Italy.
