Laura Chenel’s Launches Medallion Collection with New 3.5-Ounce Format

Laura Chenel’s launched a new line of cheeses this week. The company’s Medallion Collection offers 3.5-ounce fresh chèvre medallions in five distinct flavors.

Zachary Pass, National Sales Manager, Laura Chenel“We’ve noticed that consumers are drawn more and more to fresh products in smaller packages, and this is for several reasons,” states Zachary Pass, National Sales Manager. “The price point is surely a key factor, but also concerns of food waste, freshness, and convenience all come into play. We’re excited that our new Medallion Collection of fresh goat cheeses addresses each and every one of these top-of-mind issues.”

The line is available in a variety of unique flavors, including:

  • Poppy Seed & Peppercorn: Crushed peppercorns liven up the fresh chèvre by adding a slightly hot yet sweet flavor, while the poppy seeds bring a nutty flavor with a light, playful crunch.
  • Fig & Grapefruit: The sweetness of fig pairs beautifully with the bright tang of grapefruit and that of the goat’s milk.
  • Sundried Tomato & Basil: The savory sun-dried tomato flavor is counter-balanced by the subtle basil and green pepper notes enhancing the clean, creamy mouthfeel of the fresh goat cheese.
  • Chives & Shallots: Shallots add a hint of sweetness to the fresh goat cheese flavor, while the chives’ herbaceous taste offers notes of springtime.
  • Original: Famous for its rich-tasting, bright citrusy tang, flavors are enhanced thanks to a careful, balanced amount of salt. 

The line’s small, disk-shaped format was designed to provide consumers with an accessible retail price for the company’s tasty, healthy goat cheeses, while offering convenience, a variety of usage options, and a wide array of fresh flavors for new and current chèvre consumers alike.

Perfect for “grab & go” displays, the medallions’ easy-to-open packaging and small size make them an ideal snack while discouraging food waste.

Like all the company’s products, Laura Chenel’s latest line is made using only fresh, locally-sourced goat cheese from farms in the western U.S. The Medallion Collection of 3.5-ounce fresh goat cheeses will have a Suggested Retail Price of $3.49 per unit. The product line will be featured at Laura Chenel’s booth—#3681—at the International Dairy Deli Bakery Association Show in Anaheim, California, June 4-6, 2017.
