A newcomer to the NZ Cheese world, Viavio Ltd produces Italian-style high-quality cheese in Nelson, pairing cheese-master know-how from Italy with the most natural ingredients from NZ. Viavio’s very own cheese master, with more than 35 years’ experience in Italy, makes each single cheese following the best Italian tradition with great passion and care. Viavio’s cheese assortment includes products with true recipes from several Italian regions including Mozzarella, Bocconcini and Caciocavallo from Campania, Burrata and Stracciatella from Apulia, Stracchino and Gorgonzola from Lombardy, Fontal from Val d’Aosta and Ricotta. All products are preservative-free and are made using an exceptionally naturally rich milk from A2-tested cows from Oaklands Farm in Nelson. The owners Flavio and Flavia are from Rome, passionate about food and rugby. The name ‘Viavio’ came about by joining the last part of their names. The challenge for Flavio and Flavia is to promote fresh cheese. In Italy, fresh cheese is the highlight of the dish but this isn’t the case yet here in NZ, and the team at Viavio look to change up the menu to include more than just a cheese board. You’ll never taste fresher, more delicious cheese than that of Viavio. For more information visit or call 021 261 3077.
