Emmi Roth could be described as the Apple Inc. of the cheese-making world. Like Apple — especially in its early days — the Fitchburg, Wis.-based company is willing to innovate and take risks in its quest to create unique, high-quality products.
Formerly operating as Roth Käse USA Ltd., the company was acquired by Switzerland’s Emmi Group in 2009. Emmi Roth currently operates two creameries in Wisconsin, in Platteville and Monroe, where it creates award-winning specialty cheeses that go well beyond the standard offerings. It employs approximately 300 people within its creameries and headquarters.
