Continuing the discussion about the importance of cheese importers and distributers to the cheese chain, host Greg Blais chats with Stephanie Ciano and Shelli Morton of Crystal Food Import/World’s Best Cheese. Stephanie and Shelli talk about the history of Crystal Food, and how the company has changed the industry and adapted to changes in American cheese culture. During the busy holiday season, cheese shops around the country stock their walk-ins and cheese cases to the brim. Tune in to hear all of the details about how that cheese gets from the farm to the counter from two veterans in the cheese biz. This program was brought to you by The Wisconsin Milk Marketing Board.
