When you choose Land O Lakes® premium cheese sauces to be the workhorse ingredients in your operation, not only can you rely on high-quality sauces that have a near-100% yield from the pouch, but you can also save money by taking part in rebate programs from Land O’Lakes Foodservice or your broad line distributor.

Low inventory = low food cost!
