(Green Bay, Wis.) – In response to growth of snacking and flavored cheeses, BelGioioso Cheese, Inc. introduces their new Artigiano® Gourmet Snacks and Crumbles in Balsamic & Cipolline and Vino Rosso flavors.
Artigiano®, which means Artisan in Italian, is carefully hand-crafted and aged to achieve its distinct flavor, aroma and fine crystalline texture. The new enrobed Gourmet Snack Cheeses are individually wrapped for a convenient 80-calorie on-the-go snack. The new 8 oz. Crumbled Twist Tie Bags are a gourmet option for flavor enhancements on pastas, salads or soups.
“We are seeing flavored cheeses growing faster than the overall specialty cheese category and snacking continues to be a traffic driver as well,” says Sean Moran, Vice President of BelGioioso Sales. “Artigiano’s exceptional award-winning quality and unique flavors have been well received by consumers. These new snack sizes and crumbles are sure to stand out in the deli case.”
With over 95% of people snacking twice per day, snacking cheese sales are now over 10% of specialty cheese sales. Flavored artisan cheeses are also seeing explosive growth and Artigiano Gourmet Snacks and Crumbles offer unique, first-of-its-kind offerings to the category.
