Tuesday, April 11th, 2017

As retailers look to satisfy the consumer’s growing demand for taste experience and convenience, check out What’s In Store for Black Kassel in the deli department.

Black Kassel, whose legendary taste and authentic Old World craftsmanship is based on European recipes passed down through generations, is extending our line of premium dry aged deli meats with convenient pre-packaged sliced offerings.

Black Kassel introduces four unique new products:

  • Old Forest Salami–a lean blend of pork with delicate mild smoky flavor.
  • Mustard Seed Salami–featuring whole mustard seeds and garlic.
  • Picante Salami–featuring a kick of habanero pepper.
  • Speck–also known as smoked prosciutto, dry-aged for 80 days.

Old Forest Salami

Our convenient packaging has an array of benefits:

  • Re-sealable: maintains moisture and flavor, with better storage.
  • Easy-peel: for a no-hassle customer experience.
  • MAP Packaging: for better visual appearance, and longer shelf-life.

These meats are free from all major food allergens, making these products perfect for entertaining for all ages. The natural wood cold-smoking coupled with dry-aging for a minimum of 28 days brings these full bodied flavors to maturity, while unique shapes such as flower and square/diamond elevate entertaining to new levels. Bringing guests to believe they are true Lords & Ladies in the castle.

Speck, or smoked prosciutto

Consumers will love pairing these on-trend products in cheese plates and charcuterie boards. Try them with:

  • Grainy Mustards
  • Comb Honey
  • Specialty Jams
  • Fruits and nuts
  • Crackers or Crusty Breads
  • Cheeses such as Parmigiano-Reggiano, Manchego, Triple Cream Brie, and Aged Cheddar
  • Various beers and wines

Using authentic recipes originating along the Rhein and Mosel Rivers, Black Kassel maintains old world craftsmanship and traditions that are distinctly of Central European heritage —with carefully blended spices, naturally smoked over select hardwoods, and patiently dry aged to perfection—that’s how Black Kassel creates the legendary distinctive taste that make consumers appreciate our products time and time again.

Thank you for watching What’s in Store.
