Schuman Cheese, the largest U.S. importer of Italian cheeses, announces several innovative new products that will debut at the inaugural online product marketplace, Specialty Food Association Live on Sept. 21-24. It will be unveiling four new specialty products.
Two new products will launch under the flagship brand, Cello, pushing forward Schuman’s vision to make specialty cheese more accessible and exciting than ever. The new Cello innovations include:
- Cello Pumpkin Spice Rubbed Fontal:Made with a blend of cinnamon, pumpkin pie spice and a touch of honey. This newest addition to Cello’s line of award-winning Hand-Rubbed Fontals packs all the soft, creamy consistency consumers love with a spicy new twist.
- Cello Snack Packs:Cello Snack Packs are portable pairings of the brand’s most celebrated cheeses, like the world-renowned Copper Kettle or creamy Fontal, packaged with tart, dried fruit and roasted nuts.
In addition, Schuman will be introducing two new brands to retail:
- Margot Fromages:The third largest – and last family owned –Affineurs of Gruyère, specializing in the aging and ripening of Swiss Le GruyeÌre. This distinctively nutty and fruity Le GruyeÌre is aged from 5-12 months, beginning creamy and mild at five months, and then developing into a more complex, salty and earthy flavor as it ages.
- Vevan:Plant-based Vevan is all about the traditional cheese experience – minus the dairy. Vevan offers the same creamy texture and perfect gooey melt in the familiar flavors of Ched, Mozza and P’Jack – all of which are dairy-free, lactose-free, gluten-free and non-GMO.
“At Schuman Cheese, we have a genuine appreciation for the art of cheese making, and we pride ourselves on constantly pushing the boundaries with innovations in the specialty cheese space,” said Ian Schuman, import business unit manager.“These latest offerings are a testament to our dedication to grow and diversify the cheese category not just in flavor but also format and occasion.”
Each of the new products will be available and on display at SFA Live! in Schuman Cheese’s virtual showroom. For more details on the showroom, see here.
