ANAHEIM, CALIF. —  At the Madison, Wis.-based International Dairy Deli Bakery Association (IDDBA)’s 2023 show June 4-6, New York-based Lactalis American Group, Inc. was offering samples of its new Galbani Fresh Mozzarella Marinated.

Carrie Duggan, the company’s senior marketing manager, said that the classic marinated mozzarella has been around for awhile, but two new flavors are ready to launch by August.

Those new flavors are spicy pepper and garlic onion. Duggan said what is great about the marinated mozzarella is how much marinade is leftover in the package after the cheese has been taken out. It can be saved and used to marinade meats or added to salads and other recipes.

At its IDDBA booth, Lactalis offered a summery play on caprese salad with fresh mozzarella, watermelon and mint. The company has an array of other fresh mozzarella recipes on its website.
