Oceanside, California-based Olli Salumeria has debuted its Olli Pepperoni Mozzarella Snack Pack, the latest offering in its line of high-protein grab-and-go mini meals.
The snack pack, combining sliced Olli Pepperoni and Mozzarella cheese with La Panzanella crackers, joins four other Olli Snack Pack salami/cheese pairings including Genoa/Fontina, Sopressata/Cheddar, Calabrese/Asiago and Prosciutto/Mozzarella.
Launched in 2018, Olli Snack Packs leverage the charcuterie craze with single-serving, gluten-free and keto-friendly snack packs featuring premium, slow-cured salami, cheese and crackers on-the-go. The company’s products are made with natural ingredients that are hormone- and antibiotic-free, according to multi-generational Italian family recipes.
“As part of our ongoing mission to bring the distinctive flavors of our slow-cured salami to consumers in the U.S., we’re always looking for new pairings and other ways to reach foodies, busy families and those looking for an authentic Italian experience,” said Oliviero Colmignoli, president.
“Olli Snack Packs combine our famous salami with high-quality pairings to create an easy, flavorful and satiating mini meal for anyone on the go. The only thing missing is the charcuterie board. With our latest Olli Snack Pack, we’re pairing two of the most beloved, most classic charcuterie flavors – pepperoni and mozzarella – for the first time and in way that reminds everyone of Olli’s 170-year legacy in Italian salami.”
Led by Colmignoli, the grandson of cured-meat legend Ferruccio Fiorucci, Olli Salumeria hopes to introduce American consumers to a sweeter, less acidic taste of salami slow-cured in the Italian method.
From its processing facilities, Olli Salumeria combines old-world family recipes, curing techniques and quality ingredients with a commitment to becoming a 100 percent preservative-free Italian salami producer.
Charcuterie became popular during the COVID-19 pandemic, as consumers sought exciting, premium foods at home. Online searches about charcuterie grew nearly 300 percent through 2021, with continued interest in the post-pandemic period.
Olli Snack Packs can be found at Walmart, Amazon, Publix and Albertsons locations, and at an increasing number of regional supermarkets and specialty retailers across the country.
