Supermarket Perimeter - July 2019 - 31

What's trending
Goat cheese has seen tremendous growth in retail over the past few
years, totaling a compound annual growth rate of 5% since 2013. Its
growing popularity with consumers was the driving force behind the introduction of Roth Chèvre, which the company showcased at
IDDBA '19 in Orlando. It is available nationwide in several different
flavors including classic Chèvre as well as Honey, Garlic & Herb, and Wild
Blueberry, with retail formats including 8-oz and 4-oz logs, a 4-oz plain
crumble cup and 1-oz medallions for grab-and-go applications.
Convenience continues to be top of mind for consumers, and specialty cheese is no exception. They're looking to simplify meal prep,
eliminate food waste, and enjoy their favorite artisan products onthe-go. BelGioioso - based in Green Bay, Wisconsin - this summer,
introduced a pair of snacking specialty cheeses - its Fresh Asiago
Snack Cheese and its Provolone Snack tray.
The Provolone is sliced into cracker-cut sizes and packaged into
3-oz trays with a resealable film The Asiago Fresco
features a soft, creamy texture and mild, sweet
flavor. Eave individually wrapped portion has
just 80 calories.
Roth's new Flavor Ups Blue Cheese
Crumbles were designed around this

trend. Available in 1-oz single serve cups, 3-packs or 9-packs, Flavor
Ups were made to fulfill a void in the blue cheese category, offering
convenient single-serve packaging for meal prep and recipe creation.
The single-serve cups give today's busy consumer a convenient way to
upgrade their meals whether they are dining at home, at their desk, or
at grab-and-go lunch areas. The single-serve packaging also reduces
food waste because you can enjoy just one ounce of blue cheese at
time instead of opening a whole cup.
Imported cheeses are also continuing to grow in popularity with
consumers, growing 11% YTD in dollar sales. Gruyere specifically is
becoming more and more trendy. Of 72 specialty cheese varieties,
Gruyere is in the top seven varieties for dollar growth.
Emmi USA recently debuted its Kaltbach cave-aged gouda, giving
the company a complete line of cheeses aged in the 22 million-yearold cave in Switzerland. The Kaltbach line, which also includes Le
Gruyere and Le Cremeux, also received a packaging redesign. The
company says the new look helps tell the cheese's story and conveys
to the consumer its quality.
Somerdale International, headquartered in Somerset, England, is the largest importer of British cheeses into the US. The
company showcased its products at IDDBA, including its Baber's
1833 Cheddar and Cahill's Original Irish Whiskey cheese.

Unexpected pairings
Part of building a working relationship with
consumers is the ability to continually offer
them knowledge and ideas about the items
you're selling. That was the thought behind
a series of presentations at IDDBA '19 in
Orlando.
Consumers have likely seen the traditional crackers and wine paired with specialty
cheese, but do they know which chocolate
goes well with goat cheese? What about
bourbon?
Michael Landis, an independent food and
beverage educator specializing in cheese,
wine, beer, cider and spirits, hosted a threepart cheese pairing series. Landis showed
retailers and suppliers how to pair specialty
cheese with beer, bourbon and chocolate,
recommending retailers pass that information along to shoppers or use it to build
intriguing displays and cross-merchandising
opportunities in their stores.
