Master Cheesemakers At Saputo Cheese USA Inc.


Kurt Heitmann
Kurt Heitmann
Kurt has long been committed to excellence. Since joining Alto Dairy in 1972, he’s kept up with cheesemaking trends by taking courses at the University of Wisconsin-Madison. His upbringing on a dairy farm taught him to relish a challenge, like trying different ‘make’ processes for his cheeses. As a result, Kurt has his Wisconsin Master Cheesemaker® certifications in cheddar, mozzarella, Colby and Monterey jack.
Master Cheesemaker Certified in: Cheddar, Colby, Monterey Jack, Mozzarella
Allan Scott
Allan Scott
Allan’s devotion to cheesemaking took a few years to blossom. He didn’t grow up in a cheesemaking family, so it took a high school job to really develop a passion for the craft. Since then, Allan has lived that passion to its fullest, and is now a Wisconsin Master Cheesemaker® certified in mozzarella and provolone.
Master Cheesemaker Certified in: Mozzarella, Provolone
Gregg Palubicki
Gregg Palubicki
Gregg has been devoted to the art of cheesemaking for more than 30 years. In particular, he’s pursued perfection in cheddar and Colby since the 1970s, and is now certified in both. Gregg’s affinity for cheesemaking is evident in his role as Cheese Technical Services Coordinator at Saputo.

Ken DeMaa
Ken DeMaa
A part-time job during high school at Alto Dairy launched Ken’s cheesemaking career.
