A long love story with Ricotta

That began many years ago

Grandfather Giuseppe’s plan, the dream of his son Lino and Lino’s wife Elda, our present: the story of Caseificio Elda is also the story of a family.


In 1917, grandfather Giuseppe Zerbato works producing cheese in the mountain region between Verona and Vicenza. In the sixties, his son Lino and Lino’s wife Elda open a small artisan cheese factory.


The Zerbato brothers embark on a new venture, abandoning cheese to concentrate solely on the production of ricotta.
Out of love for their mother, they name the new company after her: this is the start of Caseificio Elda.


Elda starts working with mass distribution, gradually changing from a small dairy business to an industrial company, and eventually becoming one of the three largest Italian producers.


The Elda product range expands with the introduction of spreadable cheese, mascarpone, creams for tiramisù and cheesecake, cannoli kits and many other specialities.


The factory grows to meet increasing market demand.
