HAYWARD, CALIF. — Columbus Craft Meats, a subsidiary of Hormel Foods Corp., is debuting the Columbus Charcuterie Tasting Board.
Packaged in wood-printed plastic designed to look like a board with a clear film cover, the charcuterie plate includes aged white cheddar cheese, chocolate-covered cranberries, Castelvetrano olives, La Panzanella multigrain crackers and two varieties of Columbus Craft Meats branded salami.
The Italian dry salami is made with select cuts of pork, cracked black pepper, burgundy wine and a blend of spices. The meat is then aged for 21 to 33 days.
The Calabrese salami, inspired by a recipe from the Calabria region of Italy, is made from whole cuts of trimmed pork combined with crushed red pepper and red bell peppers. The salami is air-dried and aged for at least 21 days.
"Our new Columbus Charcuterie Tasting Board is perfect for consumers looking for a premium charcuterie experience, whether they are entertaining or want to bring something to a party," said Henry Hsia, director of marketing for Columbus Craft Meats. "Instead of having to purchase the items individually and craft a board on their own, consumers can rely on our expertise."
The 12.5-oz pack is available nationwide for $13.99.
