LEPRINO FOODS BEGAN as a small, family-owned market selling grocery items and handmade cheese in Denver, Colorado, USA. Originally, Leprino cheese was sold under the “Gina Marie” brand, a contraction of Regina Italian meaning “Queen”. The name symbolized the highest quality and standards of Leprino Foods’ products. These are the same high quality and performance standards that we strive to deliver each and every day.

HEADQUARTERED IN DENVER, COLORADO on the same corner where Mike Leprino Sr.’s grocery store once stood, Leprino Foods continues to meet its goal of producing the best dairy ingredients available. The company will settle for nothing less than excellence and remains dedicated to the product development and culinary innovation that elevated us to an industry leader.
