Old Croc Introduces Exciting Extensions to Its Flavored Cheese Line


CHATHAM, NJ
Friday, November 2nd, 2018

Cheese and I are the best of friends, so any time I hear cheesy news, I get excited. Trugman-Nash, the makers of Old Croc Australian cheddar, is now offering new ways for cheese lovers to enjoy its award-winning line of cheddars. Previously available only in 6 oz chunks, Old Croc flavored cheddars are now available in a wide assortment of products including pre-packaged slices, easy-to-serve snack trays, Croc Bites single portion snacks, and delicious spreads.

As the cheeses gained popularity, the company embraced comments from fans as development of the new products took place.

Ken Meyers, President & CEO, Old Croc“The flavored cheddars were a natural addition to the line,” said Ken Meyers, President & CEO. “The interest being shown by consumers in our products inspired us to open the conversation on social media. We ran an informal survey and gave them the chance to tell us what flavors they wanted to enjoy.”

The bold flavored cheeses, which come in Bacon & Jalapeno, Horseradish, Roasted Garlic & Herb, and Chipotle & Onion, made their debut in 2017 at the U.S. Cheese Championships.

“We are very excited about our new line extensions because they allow Old Croc cheese lovers the opportunity to enjoy our flavored cheddars in different ways, and for different occasions, whether you’re entertaining, making a sandwich, or grabbing a quick snack”, said Meyers in a company press release.

Old Croc’s cheddar is crafted with pure Australian milk that’s RBST-free and non-GMO, drawing on a rich tradition of Australian dairy farming, which delivers the bold flavor profile that Old Croc cheeses have become known for. Old Croc grass-fed cheddar undergoes a thorough aging process, with the signature Sharp Cheddar aged for a minimum of 9 months.

“Old Croc cheddar is made with an old-world recipe that maximizes texture, body, richness, and aging capabilities of the cheese to deliver a tasteful experience,” explained Meyers. “Compared to many cheddars that are designed for shredding and cooking, Old Croc is designed to be a snacking cheese. We use the same cheddar for our recipe when we make our flavored cheeses and spreads and we designed our new products to maintain the signature ‘bite’ that Old Croc cheeses have become known for. All of our ingredients have to be of the very highest quality in order to maintain our overall brand proposition.”
