Karoun has an international story, as the Baghdassarian Family immigrated to the United States from Lebanon in 1990 to pursue the American dream and a passion for the art and science of yogurt and cheesemaking. "As a family business that is living the American dream, all of us at Karoun Dairies , Inc. take great pride in creating and manufacturing the most delicious, best quality all natural cheeses on the market," said Rostom Baghdassarian, company COO. "Serving the Mediterranean, Indian, Middle Eastern, Hispanic and natural markets using old country methods and family recipes, we are proud to share delicious new options for a healthy and flavorful approach to cooking and eating.

As is evident by these latest awards, Karoun continues to set a new standard for ethnic cheese and all natural yogurt products in the United States, with dairy products which are made strictly using only milk from cows that are free from growth hormones, BGH/rBST, and Real California Milk certified.
