La Farge, WI (PRWEB) March 11, 2015
Organic Valley, the nation’s largest cooperative of organic farmers and a leading organic brand, today announced the first organic snacking cheese for adults. Organic Valley Snack Sticks are made with delicious organic cheese, crafted in small batches for exceptional flavor. Organic Valley Snack Sticks are available in Medium Cheddar and Pepper Jack varieties. Both skus will be sampled at Natural Products ExpoWest in Anaheim, at Organic Valley’s booth #2730.
Conveniently packaged in six individually-wrapped 0.75-oz. sticks for on-the-go convenience, Organic Valley Snack Sticks are made from award-winning Organic Valley Medium Cheddar and Organic Valley Pepper Jack cheeses. Organic Valley Cheddar earned awards at the 2014 Los Angeles International Dairy Competition as well as the 2014 World Cheese Championship. Organic Valley Pepper Jack also earned awards at the 2014 Los Angeles International Dairy Competition. The cheeses are made from organic, pasture-raised milk from Organic Valley’s family farms.
Organic Valley Snack Sticks are a good source of on-the-go calcium and protein, providing 15 percent recommended daily intake (RDI) of calcium and 5 grams of protein. As always, Organic Valley never uses any antibiotics, synthetic hormones, toxic pesticides or GMOs. Organic Valley expects Snack Sticks will be available nationwide in natural food stores, food cooperatives and major grocery chains beginning in May, with a SRP of $5.99 for a package of six 0.75-oz. sticks.
According to SPINSscan, Organic Cheese sales are on the steady rise, with more than 25 percent growth, a pace that is five times faster than the overall U.S. Cheese Retail Sales category.
