ST. LOUIS – Volpi Foods is launching Small Bites, a new line of single-serve packages with 1.5-oz portions of the brand’s sliced, dry-cured meats. The  single-serve portion reduces potential waste and empowers consumers to effectively create a charcuterie board for one or to use as toppers for salads and pizza, omelet enhancers, picnic packs and more, the company said.

Volpi opted for the 1.5-oz size over the conventional 4-oz portion to encourage trial of new products without the barriers of cost and uncertainty of purchasing a larger quantity, Volpi said. Small Bites will launch with the company's Prosciutto, Coppa, Sopressata and Spicy Sopressata.

“While we saw the need for smaller portion options of our products before the pandemic, the demand is even more prevalent now,” said Deanna Depke, marketing manager for Volpie Foods. “Consumers are spending more time with their immediate families. They are experimenting more in the kitchen. They are looking for affordable indulgences that can be enjoyed at home. The Small Bites line allows for convenience, flexibility and ultimately discovery. It’s a cost-effective way to mix and match charcuterie items, makes for the perfect snack and encourages consumers to incorporate our products into new at-home recipes.”

Volpi Small Bites will be available at retailers across the country, including Schnucks, Dierbergs, Hy-Vee, Albertsons and World Market locations.
