Delivering the Promise of Dairy
Hilmar Cheese Company manufactures and markets three main products — cheese, and through our Hilmar Ingredients division, whey proteins and lactose.
Our cheese is natural American cheese, like Cheddar, Monterey Jack and Colby. All cheese is made from pasteurized milk. It is used by private label and national brands in cheese packs, as well as by retail and foodservice companies in their menu items.

Instead, these functional, nutritious ingredients are marketed by Hilmar Ingredients, a division of Hilmar Cheese Company. Food, beverage, confectionary and pharmaceutical companies around the world use our whey proteins and lactose in their products. Learn more about Hilmar Ingredients’ whey protein and lactose.
