Rumiano Cheese Company has transitioned to a 100% organic food brand.

The California company’s entire dairy portfolio is USDA Certified Organic in addition to being Non-GMO Project Verified, and free from pesticides, hormones and antibiotics. Rumiano sources its organic ingredients from 27 small, family-owned farms in Northern California.

The company also announced it has unveiled a direct-to-consumer ecommerce website offering a selection of its organic, non-GMO cheeses and gourmet gift boxes. Consumers in all 50 states can shop a variety of curated cheese collections and gift boxes or create their own 5-pack “Build a Box” cheese collection and have it delivered to their door with two-day shipping. 

With Build a Box, customers can mix and match different cheese styles (bars, slices, shreds and bites) and choose from more than 20 items from Rumiano’s Redwood Coast and Family Organics lines to customize a box of five or more cheeses.

“Very few large cheese producers sell directly to consumers,”​ said Joe Baird, CEO of Rumiano Cheese Company.

“As the demand for home delivery continues to grow, we are proud to offer this convenient online solution to our loyal customers and to be expanding our reach across the country.”

In addition to the new direct-to-consumer retail platform, Rumiano Cheese Company’s organic products are available in more than 1,500 grocery and natural foods stores locations across the US including select Whole Foods, Costco, Natural Grocers and Sprouts.
