Foodservice brand Country Range has added a selection of soft cheeses and yogurts, including a mascarpone and traditional crème fraiche, to its chilled dairy offering.
The new “nutrient-rich” products are made fresh with high-quality milk sourced within a 25-mile radius of the dairy’s production site, and are suitable for those with special diets such as vegetarian or flexitarian.
The full Country Range collection features Set Soured Cream, Full Fat Soft Cheese, Luxury Full Fat Soft Cheese, Crème Fraiche, Mascarpone, Natural Yogurt and Greek Style Natural Yogurt.
Available in colour-coded and resealable 2kg tubs, the new products can be purchased via the network of independent wholesalers which make up the Country Range Group.
Country Range Group’s brand manager Vasita Jantabutara said: “Dairy is an important foodstuff for many diners as part of a healthy and balanced diet so it’s important that operators use a range of products that they have confidence in and know their customers will too.
“Our new soft cheeses and yogurts are perfect for caterers as they taste fantastic, are packed full of nutrients and vitamins, and can be used in variety of sweet and savoury dishes.
“Take our new mascarpone for instance, it’s delicious when used in a tasty tart or trifle to add a bit of luxury but equally as good when used to enhance the creaminess of pasta dishes or cooking sauces.”
