Now that the month of September is well underway, we can truly embrace the fall season. With the arrival of the fall months comes an exciting time in the retail sector, as consumers are looking to indulge in flavorful offerings for a wide variety of eating occasions. Who better than Saputo to help meet this demand? The cheesemaker’s Montchevre brand is bringing an enticing range of flavor offerings to cater to demand in the lead-up to the winter holiday season.
“Our fresh goat cheese logs lend themselves perfectly to holiday-focused entertaining,” Jenny Englert, Saputo Dairy USA Senior Marketing Manager, tells me. “At the physical shelves, we recommend signage highlighting these seasonal flavors so consumers know these offerings exist amongst the everyday flavors they routinely purchase. We also encourage retail partners to merchandise Montchevre goat cheese logs alongside accompaniments commonly found on charcuterie boards.”
Throughout the fall and winter months, retailers can turn shoppers’ attention to Montchevre seasonal goat cheese flavors such as Spiced Pumpkin, Cranberry Cinnamon, and Truffle. Each of these flavors complements a wide variety of usage occasions as they can be spread, warmed, dipped, crumbled, and served with consumers’ favorite seasonal dishes.
“As we continue to see the demand for goat cheese on the rise, and as the leading brand in the category, the Montchevre brand is committed to continuously expanding consumption amongst United States households,” Englert points out. “With the development of these seasonal offerings, we are seeking to attract consumers who are eager to satisfy cravings for seasonally inspired flavors.”
Montchevre Spiced Pumpkin offers up a delicious blend of earthy pumpkin with hints of nutmeg and cinnamon and the tangy twist of goat’s milk. Bringing more coveted fall flavors to the cheese case, the Montchevre Cranberry Cinnamon variety features a fresh soft goat cheese log hand-rolled in cranberries with a touch of cinnamon. On the other hand, Montchevre Truffle brings shoppers a perfectly balanced combination of fresh goat milk flavor and rich truffle undertones.
It’s easy for shoppers to get creative with inventive flavor combinations like these, and retailers can further up the appeal by kickstarting their inspiration with mouth-watering recipe suggestions.
“These seasonal logs are a go-to for the center of a cheeseboard, but we also like to offer recipes that inspire consumers to break from the norm and add a little excitement to their dishes. For an appetizer, our Montchevre Truffle log is the perfect ingredient for a warm and savory Cheesy Focaccia. As a main dish, our Montchevre Spiced Pumpkin log can be blended into a rich, delectable sauce as featured in this Creamy Pumpkin Chicken Pasta. Finally, for a sweet treat, our Montchevre Cranberry Cinnamon log is the perfect base for this delicious Cranberry Cinnamon Tart.”
Seasonal flavors are all the hype amongst today’s consumers, and the Montchevre brand has made tapping into these trends easier than ever.
