Our Team

Kaizen or "continual improvement" is an approach to productivity improvement that keeps any organization a cut above the rest! With its ongoing philosophy of continuous improvement, Gossner Foods, founded by Gossner in 1966, has become one of the most technologically advanced Swiss cheese plants in the country. Now more than 30 years later since Gossner started, current president and CEO Dolores Gossner Wheeler, with support from an equally passionate, skilled and dedicated executive board, continues her father's tradition.
