All about the
charcuterie
RETAILERS have undoubtedly already jumped onto the charcuterie
train. Even if a store doesn't offer
fresh charcuterie boards, pre-packaged artisan salamis and other
meats are hard to miss these days.
BUT these high-end cured meats
and cheeses lend themselves perfectly for outdoor parties, especially
for shoppers looking for a more
refined flavor.
"CHARCUTERIE is huge here
and I know it's huge everyplace
else," Walters says. "That's really
helping with the picnic scene.
Charcuterie really is the new picnic.
People kind of get it. It's been in
Europe for so long and it's so commonplace there that we're changing the way we see it. We used to
look at charcuterie as a holiday item
and now it's 'Hey, let's go out and
eat charcuterie for dinner.'"
SIMPLE cut salami and prosciutto trays can be a tempting item for
picnic shoppers looking for something more exciting.
"WE do to-go boards and a lot
more cheese tastings and cheese
presentations along with charcuterie," Walters says. "Instead of
maybe doing box lunches with a
sandwich, chips and pretzels, we're
doing a lot more nice, simple trays
with nice meats."
THESE can be cross-merchandised with another very trendy item
- rosé. The popular pink wine is a
natural fit for the salty charcuterie
treats, as well as a light beverage
for picnics and a new option for
tailgating drinks.

Iberico ham is a
cured ham from
Spain and Portugal.
Iberian pigs are
fed specific diets
to comply with
increasingly strict
restrictions for
different grades
of Iberico ham.

Grill that ... cheese

Sandwiches are the
perfect handheld, nonmessy option for outdoor
gatherings.
Luckily for retailers,
they're also easy to class
up for today's consumers.
Instead of your traditional ham or turkey with
cheddar or swiss, think of
today's picnic sandwich as
more of a European-style
offering, with a skinny,
artisan baguette serving as
the base.
Add high-quality meats
like prosciutto, mortadella
or Iberico ham. Pair with
some of your best cheeses
and cross-merchandise a
solid-but-affordable wine.
"That's the ultimate
picnic as far as I'm concerned," Walters says. "It's
a little less traditional."

Tailgating season provides
the perfect chance to
boast your local partners,
both with food and teams.
A display at the front of
the store with hand-decorated cookies in your local
university's colors are a
good idea for the week
leading up to big home
games. You can also do
special cookie trays based
on whoever your local
team is playing - think
clever themes and sayings
referring to the opposing mascot.
Don't forget high school
football either. With most
communities having multiple schools to support,
a variety of school colors
available for cookie or
cupcake trays can be a
sales boon.

With grilling season well
underway, shoppers have
an exciting new addition
to their barbecue menu
- cheese.
Champignon North
America - headquartered
in Englewood Cliffs, New
Jersey - recently unveiled
its line of Rougette Bonfire
Grilling Cheeses to the
U.S. market. The offerings
include a soft-ripened
grilling cheese - made
to be heated directly on
the grill, just like a burger
- and an herb marinated
grilling cheese, which
comes in an aluminum
pan for easy preparation
and grilling. The company
says the cheeses develop a
chargrilled, golden crispy
outside and a warm and
creamy soft inside.
