Star Chefs Touts Folios


Lotito Foods, the family owned, four generation cheese and specialty food company, announces the newest addition to their iconic imported Italian and domestic cheese line: Folios™. The delicious Folios product is lightly baked sheets of cheese that are made from Parmesan, Cheddar or Jarlsberg® cheese. Folios are a first of its kind cheese product as no other company has ever created a product made of all natural, part-skim cheese, that is carb and gluten free and high in protein. They are available for consumers in a 4 count pack at a SRP of $5.99 and are shipped to supermarkets in the deli section in cases of 12. For foodservice operators they are available in 10 packs and come in cases of 12.

This innovative breakthrough offers both chefs and home cooks creative ways to use Folios to create recipes and ideas that were never possible before. Folios can be crisped in the microwave or oven and crumbled for use on salads and soups, or eaten alone as a crunchy cheese snack. They can be molded into an edible bowl for salads or pasta or melted over omelets or soups and they can come straight out of the package as a perfect no-carb, high protein wrap option.

Folios is available in three delicious flavors: Parmesan Folios, taken from the authentic most famous cheese of Italy, with a nutty, fruity blast of flavor; Cheddar Folios, impart a rich, Vermont buttery cheese taste and Folios made with Jarlsberg cheese offer the classic mellow yet slightly nutty deliciousness in every bite.

“Our family has been in love with cheese for over a century,” said Chris Lotito, President of Lotito Foods. “Folios is the culmination of this rich, long history of our family’s love and knowledge of artisan cheese, with a versatile, modern take on offering home cooks and chefs a totally new way to enjoy cheese. It’s a game changer!”

Folios join the already classic Lotito food product line, which includes both imported and domestic Italian cheese, cheese blends and solutions as well as Italian specialty foods. Lotito brands include Gabriella®, Suprema®, Lotito® and Swan Valley®.

“I was born into the cheese business,” adds Lotito President Chris Lotito. “And now Folios is my latest cheese passion!”
