In 1964, Gilberto Villaseñor and Ignacio Villaseñor accomplished a longstanding dream: to produce a fresh cheese that reflected the traditions of their native Mexico. The company they founded, V&V Supremo Foods, is now an industry leader in the fastest growing food category in both the retail and food service categories: premium, authentic Mexican-style food products. The family chose to make cheese in Wisconsin since it reminded them of their dairy rich state at home in Mexico. Now, it is also the oldest Hispanic family-run cheese manufacturer in the U.S. V&V Supremo oaxaca and Chihuahua Queso Quesadilla are manufactured in their Wisconsin cheese plant, Chula Vista Cheese Company. Today, 50+ years after their founding, V&V continues to preserve and share delicious traditions of the Mexican American Kitchen as well as cuisines of the world, one cheese at a time.
