Monthly Recap: February 2024

Posted by Emilia D'Albero on

February may be the shortest month of the year, but this month certainly wasn't short on cheese information and education! We covered a variety of cheesy topics and even launched some new products. Here's a quick recap of everything we discussed this month:

Blue cheese might be the most polarizing cheese in your case, but we think it's just misunderstood and under-appreciated. Use this list of tips to properly care for, display, and cut your blue cheeses to keep them looking and tasting as appetizing as possible for your mold-loving customers and blue cheese skeptics alike. 

It's true - good cheese isn't cheap. But do you know why, and more importantly, can you effectively convey that information to your customers? Read our blog post that breaks down a cheese's journey from farm to cave to boat to cheese shop, and helps foster a better understanding of and appreciation for cheese that is absolutely worth the price tag. 

New Product Alert! If the cheese signs in your case are a major source of stress for you, let us help. We're now offering custom cheese case signs that are sleek, sturdy, and most importantly, don't require you to spend hours cutting and laminating them. Plus - new sign holders that won't rust or poke into your cheese! Learn more by reading this post and email with any questions or inquiries.   

What is rennet, and what does it have to do with nursery rhymes? Check out this blog post that explains why rennet is so important to the cheesemaking process, and how to discuss rennet with your customers to correct any misinformation they may have learned on the internet.   

And finally, it's a Leap Year, so it's time to help your customers Leap into something new the next time they visit your counter. This blog post outlines some of the most popular cheeses that customers ask for, and what you could suggest if they want to try something new. And remember to suggest Formaticum Cheese Storage Bags & Sheets so their new favorite cheese stays fresh and healthy in their fridge!
