ONCE UPON A TIME…
It was 1893, actually. That’s when banker I.C. Cooper decided to put down his balance sheets and start making aged cheese in New York. Just like that, Cooper® Cheese was born. By 1918, the company had moved to Philly, and the cheese had pretty much become the Cooper® Sharp we all know and love. Cooper® kept gaining fans as time went marching on. And in 1945, as our troops were marching home from World War II, Cooper® added the CV Sharp seal to its label. That’s CV for Cooper Victory and it was a way of honoring the soldiers who fought.
Today, more than a century after I.C. Cooper first staked his claim in the chronicles of cheese history, Cooper® is a regional household favorite and a family tradition across the Northeast.
5 REASONS FANS LOVE COOPER® SHARP
Cooper® Sharp is top-tier cheese. When you grab some from the deli, you know you’re getting quality—because Cooper® is made with milk and hand-selected aged cheese. No unpronounceable ingredients here!
UNIQUE, CRAVEABLE FLAVOR
We hear it again and again … our fans love Cooper® because of its one-of-a-kind sharp flavor. Cooper® doesn’t taste like any other deli cheese, which is why it’s been a family tradition and favorite comfort food for generations.
Cooper® is creamy, flavorful, and epically versatile. You can slice it, shred it, cube it, and it melts like a dream. That’s why Cooper® is perfect for grilled cheese, deli sandwiches, mac and cheese … burgers, salads, midnight snacks. Pretty much anything, really.
Since its start more than a century ago, Cooper® has earned a loyal following in the Northeast. Because Cooper® is the taste of home. A source of regional pride. And if you’ve ever left the Northeast, you know how far you’ll go to get ahold of some Cooper® again.
Not much can transport you back in time quite like tasting something you grew up with. That’s the power of Cooper® Sharp. It’s the taste of great memories. Just like grandma’s grilled cheese, you can always count on Cooper® for a little comfort.
