About Us

Cornucopia Cheese & Specialty Foods Company was established in 1980 and was incorporated in 1983. In the early days, our founder, Noland Thuss, was the only full-time employee where we occupied the back corner of a community grocery store in rural Alamance County near Chapel Hill, NC. Our customers have always been “white tablecloth” restaurants and gourmet/health food shops. We have come a long way since those early days. Then we were called Cornucopia Cheese and we were the “cheesers”! We grew as our market redefined itself with more and more “northern transplants” entering the region bringing the need for more and more gourmet and specialized products. Hence, the natural progression to Cornucopia Cheese and Specialty Foods Company. When our customers expressed an interest and demand for new products, we responded. Now, more than ever, we have expanded our lines to include many exciting North Carolina locally made products. There are wonderful new local small food businesses that we want to introduce as we move forward. There are many exciting new horizons for all of us.

Our intention is to provide you with the most up-to-date information about our products and services. We encourage you to get involved in our online interactive opportunities with customer feedback and new product reviews. Follow us on Facebook and “like” us to your friends.

After 28 years, Cornucopia has grown into one of the leading cheese and specialty food suppliers in the Southeast United States providing over 1,000 products to customers in North Carolina and the region. We could not have made this progress without our dear friends and loyal customers. Our success depends on the trust that many have placed with us over several decades, including some very difficult financial challenges. We have made it here through hard work and determination to supply you with the very best in quality and service. We promise to remember how far we have come and how far we have to go!

Happy Shopping!
