When customers create their own cheese boards, they typically head right to the produce department to select fruit. We know that most fruits work well with cheese and offer a nice contrast to the cheese flavors. When the cheese monger in a store creates a cheese board, they are usually able to bring in products designed to be paired up with cheeses. These specialty products are available in most cheese-centered delis and not always found in every store.
What can retailers do when they don’t have a specialty cheese shop in their stores or if don’t carry these specialty items? There’s the old school of using products from the center of the store.
Join Michael Landis of Michael Landis LLC Food & Beverage Educational Services as he shares pairing ideas that any store can source from their center aisles, even smaller stores with a limited assortment of products. These ideas can be shared with shoppers to give them direction on designing inviting cheese boards.
