Wellington | Buffalo Ridge is the only water buffalo dairy in South Africa and the country’s only producer of buffalo mozzarella. Mozzarella di Bufala is recognised as one of the great cheeses of the world and is another culinary innovation for which the world is indebted to Italy. There are only a handful of buffalo mozzarella producers outside of Italy. Buffalo Mozzarella (mozzarella di bufala) belongs to the stretched curd type cheese, known as pasta filata, and should not be confused with the less acclaimed cows’ milk mozzarella (fior di latte). The buffalo milk mozzarella from Buffalo Ridge is made in the traditional, centuries-old method, using only whole buffalo milk and selected cultures to obtain the desired flavour and texture. The mozzarella is hand-made, but machine moulded in the modern Italian tradition. Other Buffalo Ridge products are whole milk, feta, fromage blanc, yoghurt and a mature, aged cheese called Rockwood. Our products contain no preservatives, chemical additives, colourants or flavourants.
