Supermarket Perimeter - November 2022 - 9

T
he beginning of the pandemic in 2020 drastically changed the home
entertainment board industry. Charcuterie found a new place in many
consumers' shopping carts and kitchens.
Now getting close to three years later, after many ebbs and flows of case numbers
and variants, how has the industry continued to change? Two industry leaders -
Oliviero Colmignoli, president and founder of Oceanside, Calif.-based Olli Salumeria,
and Deanna Depke, marketing manager of St. Louis-based Volpi Foods - shared their
perspectives on this new era of entertainment boards - charcuterie 2.0.
How has the charcuterie industry changed
since the beginning of the pandemic?
Colmignoli: The early days of the pandemic had an immediate impact on the industry
as foodservice dwindled and charcuterie was not being served at group gatherings,
but sales quickly accelerated as consumers tapped into the versatility of salami as a
convenient high-protein snack or entrée ingredient.
As the pandemic continued, people craved the social aspect of dining out and began
to recreate exciting culinary experiences at home, including charcuterie boards. It's
no surprise that charcuterie has been trending for several years. Charcuterie became
increasingly popular during the pandemic, as consumers sought exciting, premium
foods at home. Online searches about charcuterie grew nearly 300% through 2021, with
continued momentum in the post-pandemic period. This trend led to increased interest
in charcuterie boards and grazing platters, which encouraged a lighter, less entrée-focused
approach to meals. Great tasting, shelf-stable and versatile in a broad range of dishes or as
a simple snack, salami grew increasingly popular during the pandemic, and consumer eating
habits during this period have helped shape our product development moving forward.
Depke: Charcuterie boards have become a social media phenomenon throughout the
course of the pandemic and after. People find a sense of joy in curating and building
the boards as well as serving them. Now, boards are a staple food fit for any occasion,
whether it be themed movie viewings or classic holiday parties.
At Volpi, we've partnered with a new class of catering companies who teach classes
on how to shop for and build the perfect charcuterie board for any occasion. It's a fun
way to bring people together, educate and inspire new ideas.
Olli Salumeria offers
a wide variety of
charcuterie products
for consumers looking
for on-the-go snacking
options along with
additions to their
entertainment boards.

Olli Salumeria has been busy
responding to consumer demand for
snacks and convenience.
" We continually focus on
developing new products and varieties
that make it easier for US consumers
to enjoy the flavors of authentic
Italian salami, " Oliviero Colmignoli,
president and founder, said.
Which products are you
currently promoting?
Recently, we added new varieties
to our line of Olli Snack Packs,
including Olli Pepperoni &
Mozzarella Snack Pack.
This fall, we introduced our Olli
Salamini line of bite-sized salami
chubs, available in four unique
flavor varieties including Classic,
Bourbon, Smoked and Pequin. Each
2.6-ounce package contains six
individual mini salami sticks.
Additionally, we introduced
Olli Salamini and Curds Snacks, a
combination of classic mini salami
sticks and cheddar cheese curds in a
convenient two-compartment tray.
We're continuing to innovate
with new products that capitalize
on the growing charcuterie trend,
with new additions to our line of
Olli Antipasto Trays. These
include five varieties of readyto-serve
trays, featuring 12
ounces of charcuterie salami,
cheeses and olives or other
vegetables packaged for easy
entertaining. The latest in this
line is Olli Antipasto Tray with
Cornichons & Onions, which
pairs these pickled favorites
with hard and Italian dry salami
and cheddar cheese curds.
