Great Lakes Cheese

History:

It was 1958 when Hans Epprecht, a Swiss immigrant, began his business as a small company that delivered bulk cheeses to neighborhood stores in Cleveland, Ohio, on the southern shore of Lake Erie. Before long, retailers began asking for pre-cut cheeses wrapped in smaller sizes and more cheese varieties to better satisfy their customers…and the Great Lakes Cheese tradition was born. Since then, Great Lakes has grown rapidly by acquisition, plant expansions, investment in the best technologies for production and distribution – and by setting industry standards in high service levels. Currently, Great Lakes serves the nation's retailers and food service operations with seven strategic facilities across the U.S. It is a proud tradition of award-winning quality and the customer satisfaction we earn every day.

Mission Statement

Through the traditions of a family owned business with a long-term focus on growth and stability, our mission is to be a leading manufacturer and supplier of consistently high quality cheese products.

We will achieve this through our commitment to outstanding customer service, innovation, dedicated employees, and business partnerships. This will be accomplished in an environment of open communication, integrity, and mutual respect where every person is encouraged to go beyond what is expected, and profitability is a success only if the customer, the suppliers, the employees, the communities and the company benefit.
