I do not see it in stores out here either, only in Pizzerias. I really like it and think there is a big difference in taste. It is creamer and has it's own unique flavor. It also pulls like Grande cheese does, but again it has it's own unique flavor and taste.  Take a look at the photos on my thread link. It is made by Sorrento, it is their cheese. Perhaps it is one of those cheeses that they only want to sell to a Pizzeria. Kind of an exclusive / proprietary market sales strategy. Perhaps it is one of those cheeses that only makes it way out to the west coast. It is not uncommon for a Cheese Company to use a different name for the same exact cheese that is sold in different parts of the country. Lots of the same products are named differently thoughout the USA but are made by the same company. However, I will research this Danish Cheese further. But like I said, if you find a Pizzeria that uses it, ask them to sell you some, but be prepared for the price sticker shock.

Maybe I'll have to ask at the place I get my regular Sorrento, it's a restaurant supplier so they should know.

I also found a DANISH whole milk mozzarella cheese by a compnay called Olympic Cheese which is re-labeled by another cheese distributor in my area. I purchase this at a local cheese shop in town.


After not finding a current phone number or web site for Olympic Cheese, I did a little research and think the name is/was Olympia Cheese. It looks like Olympia was bought by Lactalis/Sorrento around 1999:

Other online sources indicate the Olympia plant in Lacey, WA was closed.

So, Petersen seems to be selling private-labeled Sorrento just like Costco sells private labeled Sorrento.
