BRIDGEWATER, N.J. — Applegate Farms is introducing bulk and organic cheeses, including bulk provolone, Swiss, American and medium cheddar.
The bulk options represent a product expansion for the company as Applegate Farms cheeses were previously only available in pre-packaged slices. The company also will introduce sliced organic American and provolone cheese products.
"Customers have sought our natural and organic meats at the deli counter for years now, so we wanted to be able to offer them the ability to find Applegate Farms quality at the same location when selecting cheese as well," said Steven McDonnell, founder and chief executive officer. "Offering sandwich staples like provolone and Swiss cheese in the deli section means customers have new options for building a more natural sandwich."
