The Sargento Family represents three generations of real cheese people. Third-Generation CEO, Louis P. Gentine II, describes it best: "My grandfather had a simple philosophy: 'Hire good people, and treat them like family. His philosophy guides everything we do. It allows us to bring only the very best real, natural cheese to your family.' Today, the company is now wholly-owned by the Gentines and is in its third generation of family management. Sargento has established a reputation as an innovator of products, packaging and merchandising, being the first to market shredded natural cheese, sliced natural cheese & natural cheese blends. We'll leave you with a fun fact: the Sargento name is a combination of the two founders' names: Joseph Sartori and Leonard A. Gentine Sr.
