Champignon North America’s Kelly Newsome Discusses Rougette Bonfire Marinated Cheese for Summer

Wednesday, April 20th, 2022

While consumers may just be switching out their seasonal wardrobes, in food, we are already planning for summer. One hot item to keep in mind while stocking your departments is Champignon North America’s Rougette Bonfire Marinated Cheese, which lines up perfectly with summer activities and appetites.

Kelly Newsome, Marketing Manager, Champignon North America“Rougette Bonfire Marinated Cheese is ideal for summer merchandising displays. As a convenient and versatile feta-style cheese, it is excellent for entertaining during the summer months,” Marketing Manager Kelly Newsome tells me. “Now available all year long, Rougette Bonfire Marinated Cheese can be grilled, baked, or broiled and is the first ready-to-cook feta-style cheese in the U.S. market.”

Because it can take the heat—literally, it is a cheese able to withstand the fire of the grill—Kelly suggests merchandising displays alongside barbecue staples like burgers or with popular grilling vegetables like squash and peppers.

“Rougette Bonfire Marinated Cheese is a delectably cheesy and meat-free option to share with friends and family during Memorial Day, 4th of July, and Labor Day,” she shares. “This cheese comes in its own tray bake pan and can be paired with Mediterranean flavors like tomatoes and basil or watermelon and mint.”

For this particular cheese option, Champignon even provides retailers with special merchandising stickers that offer a feta-style tray bake recipe to help consumers recognize the product and connect it with the popular “baked feta” trend.

Making it fairly easy to have a cheesy summer—in sales, that is.
