Volpi Foods has launched its new product line, Small Bites. They are single serve packages with 1.5-oz. portions of the brand’s sliced artisan-made, dry-cured meats. The new line will work with plans for smaller holiday gatherings and more time at home this year.
“While we saw the need for smaller portion options of our products before the pandemic, the demand is even more prevalent now,” said Volpi Foods Marketing Manager Deanna Depke. “Consumers are spending more time with their immediate families. They are experimenting more in the kitchen. They are looking for affordable indulgences that can be enjoyed at home. The Small Bites line allows for convenience, flexibility and ultimately discovery. It’s a cost-effective way to mix and match charcuterie items, makes for the perfect snack and encourages consumers to incorporate our products into new at-home recipes.”
While most pre-sliced cured meats are packaged in 4-oz. portions, the 1.5-oz. size encourages trial of new products without the intimidation and cost of purchasing a larger quantity. This reduces potential waste, and consumers can now effectively make their own charcuterie board for one. Small Bites will launch with Volpi’s most popular dry-cured meats of prosciutto, coppa, sopressata and spicy sopressata. Small Bites items also can be utilized for salad toppers, pizza upgrades, omelet enhancers, picnic packs and more.
Small Bites will be available at retailers across the country in Schnucks, Dierbergs, Hy-Vee regional, Albertsons and all World Market locations.
St. Louis-based Volpi Foods is a fourth generation family-owned and operated producer of specialty cured meats since 1902.
