The Borderi Dairy was created in 1930 by Don Pasquale Borderi who was involved in the production and trade of Sicilian extra-virgin olive oil.. Due to its good performance, Don Pasquale decided to expand and diversify its offerings, including in its list also typical Sicilian cheeses..
When’ in 1970 that the son of Don Pasquale Borderi, Andrea Borderi, started? to develop his interest in the art of processing milk into cheese. In the following years, Andrea? studied intensively the Italian dairy sector specializing? in typical Sicilian products. .? His passion has always been the making of cheese., He started presenting his creations in Syracuse markets, in Floridia and the entire province. The success was immediate.
In 1998, when he has become a master cheese maker, Andrea Borderi formed with his children a Family Company: the Borderi Dairy, a sophisticated artisan cheese factory in Floridia, in the province of Syracuse. Since then the Borderi family operates in the markets of Ortigia, in Syracuse, and Floridia, They have gained the appreciation and respect of a large private and corporate public..
Behind the production of typical Sicilian cheeses of artisan dairy Bordieri there? an accurate analytical study. The dairy farm is not intended for mass production, but for quality. When’ is what allows us to win the loyalty of a large number of customers. All cheeses sold at all Borderi outlets are made by hand, in traditional ways. When’ you taste them, you realize the importance of such slow and time consuming processes, that enhance the experience of taste and of all other senses.
In 2006 the Borderi Dairy has taken another step forward, adding to the traditional products range (ricotta, mozzarella, smoked mozzarella, sweet and seasoned provole, provoloni pit, provoloni with the Nero d'Avola wine, cheeses with squid ink, Pecorino primo sale (fresh), semi-cured Pecorino , aged Pecorino cheese etc) a new line of fresh and typical Sicilian products.
This diversification was? born from a study leading to our realization that “our customers” want fresh, light food? our task is to fulfill such desires. From this realization was born our mozzarella filled with seasonal vegetables, which are a must for salads and light meals, according to the current market trends. .
