Nuestro Queso, Rosemont, Ill., launched Oaxaca shredded cheese to its line of Hispanic dairy products.

Traditionally a ball made up of long, hand-rolled ribbons, Oaxaca cheese is said to be a popular cheese in Mexico because it melts and strings more effectively than other cheese varieties when heated. The new cheese strips can be used as a melting cheese or as a quick and convenient snack.

“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 authentic Oaxaca shredded strips are available in 8-ounce, 24-ounce and 5-pound bags for a suggested retail price of $3.99, $9.99 and $29.95, respectively.
