A Lactalis American Group brand will be making its way into sports arenas and venues across the United States. Recently, the company’s popular Galbani® brand had its Galbani Italian Cheese selected as the preferred pizza cheese of global hospitality and entertainment company Delaware North, and it will be used at more than 60 operations across all divisions, including Major League Baseball (MLB), National Football League (NFL), and National Hockey League (NHL) stadiums.
“We’re proud to partner with Delaware North and bring the authentic flavor and premium quality of Galbani cheese to guests at its popular venues across the United States,” said Tim Connor, Vice President, Culinary, Lactalis American Group. “Lactalis worked with Delaware North to bring Galbani’s exceptional quality to its most recognizable food items. We’re excited to help enhance the guest concession experience with our award-winning cheeses.”
Delaware North began using Galbani as its preferred cheese in March 2023, just in time for Major League Baseball season, a press release explained. Now, with NFL and NHL seasons underway, usage of Galbani cheese is on the rise at Delaware North sports venues across the country. Many of Delaware North’s parks and resorts, gaming, travel, and Patina Restaurant Group locations are also using Galbani Mozzarella cheese for their pizza offerings.
Galbani Mozzarella was selected due to its browning well without burning and offering great color, exceptional stretch, and outstanding performance.
“We’re proud to partner with Lactalis to elevate our pizzas with their Galbani Italian cheese across Delaware North’s North American operations,” said Gonzalo Checa, Vice President of Procurement and Category Management for Delaware North. “It’s extra special to have two Buffalo companies joining forces.”
Galbani Mozzarella and Fresh Mozzarella cheeses have won 15 awards in competition since the start of 2022, including the World Cheese Championship Contest, U.S. Championship Cheese Contest, American Cheese Society Judging and Competition, World Dairy Expo, and Fine Food World Cheese Awards.
