Long Island City, NY – Forever Cheese, importer of Italian, Spanish, Portuguese, and Croatian cheese and specialty food, will be showcasing their newest products at the Winter Fancy Food Show in Booth 269, January 19-21 in San Francisco, California. They will highlight a selection of artisan cheeses and accompaniments that are new to the U.S. They will also debut new retail packaging for their lines of Mitica® Taralli and Toketti crackers. Artisan producers from Italy and Portugal will join the pioneering importer in their booth.
Some of their newest cheeses include BirbaBlu, a beer and malt soaked blue cheese from Piemonte, Italy, Cebreiro Santo André, a mushroom-shaped PDO cow’s milk cheese from Galicia, Spain, and Luna Llena, a washed-rind farmstead raw sheep’s milk cheese from Murcia, Spain. Dry goods include Mitica® Truffle Marcona Almonds, Sbrisolona al Cioccolato, a cocoa-almond-cornmeal cookie from the oldest bakery in Mantova, Italy, and Kakis, dried persimmon slices perfect for adding to cheese plates.
Forever Cheese will present new packaging during the show as a continuation from what they showed at the Summer Fancy Food Show. “We are thrilled to continue sharing new packaging with our customers,” said Michele Buster, co-owner. “All the designs we’ve introduced so far have been very well received.” New packaging for this show includes Mitica® Taralli, round crackers typical of Puglia, Italy. They will also have their Mitica® Toketti di Pane Carasau, a crunchy cracker made from fried strips of the Sardinian flatbread pane carasau. Additionally, they will showcase their Mitica® line of specialty nut retail tubs and chocolate-covered fruit, and Casa Forcello® handmade Italian mostardas and compotes, all with new packaging.
Paola Calciolari, the woman behind Casa Forcello®, will be flying in from Modena specifically for the show. Joining her will be João Pelágio, Business Development Manager at Esporão, the award-winning maker of Portuguese olive oil. Their oils include Extra Virgin Olive Oil, Organic Olive Oil, and Selecção Premium Olive Oil, which come from their sustainable estate in Alentejo.
