Norseland, Incorporated has premiered its brand new Jarlsberg Hickory Smoked at New York’s Food Film Festival. Jarlsberg obtains its flavor by being cold-smoked over smoldering hickory chip embers; infusing its mild, mellow and nutty flavor with a subtle smokiness. Deanna Finegan, Norseland's Marketing Manager, states, "We were delighted to have an opportunity for this kind of personal consumer and pairing interaction, at what is the only known multisensory film festival of its kind."
