Suprema Specialties, Inc. announces it has entered into an exclusive agreement with the Department of Food Science at Cornell University to use their research and patent for processed mozzarella cheese.

Suprema, in conjunction with Cornell University, is developing a processed mozzarella cheese for commercial distribution that has natural mozzarella cheese characteristics. The new, processed cheese is expected to have a shelf-life of approximately six months.
