Norseland Inc.- Trade Profile and Import Sources

Norseland Incorporated

Norway has been a significant source for American specialty cheeses for many years. Jarlsberg, just one brand under Norseland Inc, is the number one brand of specialty cheese in America. It has been exported to the states for over 40 years. This cheese is manufactured in 20 lb wheels and 10 lb loaves. Because of the longevity of cheese and its heavy weight, it is a product that requires shipping to cross the world. Some other notable Norseland Inc cheese products are Norwegian Specialty, Woolwich Dairy, Garcia Baquero, Old Amsterdam, Gabriella, Suprema, and Ilchester. Norseland Inc has over 500 sales representatives in the United States alone. In Bridgeport, Connecticut, Norway is the number one source of foreign goods. A major contributor of Norwegian imports is Norseland Inc (click here for Bridgeport MSA Trade Profile).
