Mozzarella Blends

You can blend mozzarella with other cheeses to create different offerings in your range such as flavour varieties, cost-effective, or reduced fat options. 


We recommend you use 75% mozzarella in your blend to achieve ideal stretch performance.  NZMP Noble™ and NZMP Egmont™ are great blending cheeses or if you are after a flavour punch try to include some NZMP Parmesan.
