Is Leoni-Grana Cheese still being made?

Hi Chowhounders,

Does anyone know if Leoni-Grana cheese is still available / being made. It used to be made in Camrose and sold all over Alberta, but I haven't seen it lately.

Thanks EdiblePrairieJennifer

  1. I've heard it's no longer being made. The woman making it retired.

      That is my recollection as well. Was she not a member of the Quebec cheese-making Saputo family?

      When I initially saw the quaere I was sure that I read something to that effect in the Edmonton Journal. Perhaps Judy Schultz's column but I tried "googling" without success.

    2. Former owner Emanuela Leoni of Camrose told me in 2006 that she was taking on partners, but when I phoned her in the spring of 2007, she said she had actually sold the operation to someone in the BC interior (Creston, I believe, but I'm not sure) and that she was consulting for them. No word since, but try phoning her (her husband still has a Camrose listing). If you have since found anything out, please let me know. I'd love to get some!
