SAN FRANCISCO — Schuman Cheese has added two new flavors to its lineup of all-cheese snack crisps, launched a line of alpine cheeses and extended its retail line of Montforte cheeses.
Tomato Basil and Bacon BBQ were the new flavors of Cello Whisps brand cheese crisps Fairfield, New Jersey-based Schuman had on display at the Specialty Food Association’s Winter Fancy Food Show. That brings to five the number of varieties in the line, Lize Willers, who works in innovation out of Schuman’s Carlsbad, California, office, said at the show.
Also at Winter Fancy Foods, Schuman highlighted its new line of alpine cheeses made at its Turtle Lake, Wisconsin, facility. Launched in the fall, the line features cave-aged Altu (aged 180 days), Monteau (120 days), Valis (75 days) and Belloux (40 days) cheeses.
“They’re our first-ever alpine cheeses, and it’s an important category to break into,” Willers said. “It’s a completely different style of cheese. And our head cheesemaker is French, so it’s close to his heart.”
The company also has added new 4 oz retail packs of its Montforte blue and gorgonzola cheeses, Willers said. “We were in the market for a better presentation of a blue wedge,” she said. Schuman intends to add more products to its Montforte retail line, she said.
