The business was founded in 1981. It is managed by Pasquale Colangelo, who is actively involved in the day-to-day running of the business, personally monitoring both the purchasing of the milk and the process of turning it into cheese. Careful selection of the buffalo milk suppliers (all located strictly within the Capaccio-Paestum plain, Salerno) guarantees an authentic product that meets the standards of the DOP buffalo mozzarella guidelines that regulate cheese production. The result is a mozzarella so delicious that the company’s products continue to meet with success in an ever widening market. A few years ago, in collaboration with the Second University of Naples, La Perla del Mediterraneo developed and patented lactose-free mozzarella. Even without any type of paid advertising, the company receives frequent media acclaim and consistent recognition for the superior quality of its products.
