Leprino Foods' history dates back over 65 years, when Jim Leprino
first started making small batches of mozzarella for local markets
and eateries in the Little Italy neighborhood of Denver. We've
grown a bit since then. Today, Leprino is the world's largest
manufacturer of mozzarella and lactose, and a leading producer of
whey protein. Still owned by Jim and the Leprino family, our sights
are set to be the "World's Best Dairy Food and Ingredient Company."
To help us achieve that bold vision, we're looking for our secret
ingredient: You. A motivated team member who is the best at what
you do. Three people in a small corner grocery store in the early
1950s have now grown to over 4,300 employees throughout 16 global
locations. Will you join us on our journey?
