Trinidad’s DOLCE VALLE DAIRY is a local company making traditional Italian cheeses and pure cream yogurt. And, these are food products with a sense of place, produced from the milk of cows grazing in the lush fields of Grande Riviere, Trinidad. (Click here for our picture gallery of Trinidad & Tobago’s local dairy products.)
Dolce Valle handcrafted cheeses include well-known varieties – Mozzarella, and Ricotta – along with cheeses that are new to us like the Caciotta Aurora and Restaginato (Aged). In addition, the dairy makes several cheeses that incorporate spices and Dolce Valle farm-grown herbs, like the Caciotta Nutmeg, Rosemary and Pepper cheeses.
The company also sells fresh milk (Latte) and plans to introduce fruit yogurts made with local fruits from the farm like pineapple, guava and soursop.
