Best Cheese Corp., Purchase, N.Y., launched Parrano cheese, available in loaves for deli slicing, grating and sandwich making.Parrano cheese

“Through recipe contests and social media, consumers and chefs have shared with us ways they incorporate Parrano into meal preparation, and the most common use we found was sandwich and Panini making. Therefore, it makes perfect sense to provide Parrano in packaging that makes it easier for recipe preparation and creates little “shrink”—in a deli loaf,” says Steven Margarites, president.

Commonly referred to as “The Cheese from Holland that thinks it’s Italian,” Parrano captures two of the world’s best known cheeses in one—Gouda and Parmigiano‐Reggiano, offering a nutty flavor, buttery aroma and smooth texture.

Best Cheese Corp. also launched a traditional rindless Gouda in loaf form.

Both Parrano and traditional Gouda loaves boasted a suggested retail price of $10.99 and $8.99 per pound, respectively.
