Nuestro Queso, Rosemont, Ill., launched Oaxaca shredded cheese strips.

Oaxaca cheese, traditionally a ball made up of long, hand-rolled ribbons, is a popular Mexican cheese that when heated, is said to melt and string more effectively than other cheese varieties.

“We are tremendously proud of this new and compelling cheese product,” says Mark Braun, chief executive officer. “In fact, we believe that many top retailers and brands select Nuestro Queso as their co-packing partner because of our deep consumer insights and our ability to leverage our experience as brand owners.”

The new Nuestro Queso Oaxaca shredded cheese strips are available in 8- and 24-ounce and 5-pound bags for a suggested retail price of $3.99, $9.99 and $29.95, respectively.
