CHICAGO – Mexican cheese, crema and chorizo producer V&V Supremo Foods, Inc., announced Aug. 10 it acquired Mill Creek Cheese, a cheese plant in Iowa County, Wis.

Financial terms of the purchase were not disclosed.

V&V Supremo shared that it bought the Wisconsin-based, family-owned facility, which has been producing cheese since 1891, to increase production and meet the growing demand for its Mexican specialty dairy products, as well as expand its presence in key markets.

"This acquisition is a very important step in our growth strategy,” said Gilberto Villaseñor II, chief visionary officer for V&V Supremo.

The company’s leadership stated it is pleased to expand its product catalog of cheeses as it continues to grow.

The Chicago-based company, which makes award-winning Chihuahua Brand Quesadilla Cheese and other authentic Mexican products, serves both the retail and foodservice industries. It was founded in 1964, making it one of the oldest family-run Hispanic food businesses in the US.
