Sargento debuts Reserve Series shredded cheese
Sargento Foods, Plymouth, Wis., launched Reserve Series shredded cheese. The line consists of natural cheeses aged for up to 18 months to achieve the fullest flavor. The premium cheeses are freshly shredded from blocks, adding authentic and unique new cuts that perfectly complement a variety of recipes, Sargento said. The shreds come in four varieties: aged Italian blend, six-month aged Gouda, 14-month aged Parmesan and 18-month aged cheddar. To market the Reserve Series, Sargento is also launching the World’s Slowest Pizza Delivery — which is free pizza given to the first 100 people who respond and live within the company’s pizza partner’s delivery radius in Chicago. However, respondents will have to wait up to 18 months while the cheese ages to get it.
