The art of preparing cheese and charcuterie boards is a great way to engage consumers and attract them to the varieties of specialty cheeses and meats in your in-store delis and cheese departments. As many shoppers may be looking for direction on the types of cheeses and meats now available in the retail setting, retailers can play an important role in educating them on different types of cheeses, meats, and pairings, as well as how they can create their own cheese and charcuterie boards for entertaining family, friends, and colleagues. And as “locally-sourced” has become such an important attribute when showcasing specialty products, boards featuring food items produced in the specific state or region where a retailer is located can drive attention to that area’s many food producers.
Join Tillamook and Olympia Provisions as they share their expertise and knowledge in creating creative and eye-catching boards using locally-sourced items, in this case from their home state of Oregon. Presenting are Jill Allen, Director of Product Research & Development at Tillamook, and Elias Cairo, Salumist and Owner of Olympia Provisions.
