La Casa Del Formaggio’s Fresh Salad Bocconcini with Mediterranean Marinade in a 200g packsize has received the Gold Medal in the CLASS: 49 Most Innovative Product and/or Package of any Variety of Cheese category at the Sydney Royal Dairy Awards on February 15th, 2013. This product achieved the criteria to be honored with the gold medal in areas of packaging, innovation and product quality.
A completely new and novel product to the marketplace, La Casa Del Formaggio’s Fresh Salad Bocconcini with Mediterranean Marinade combines bocconcini in its freshest form (preserved in brine) with an herb marinade sachet placed on top of the lid from Queensland-based Gourmet Gardens. The consumer only needs to tip the brine, add the marinade and shake or stir to combine for instant antipasto or a flavourful addition to a salad or entrée. Salad Bocconcini are a fresher, healthier style of marinated cheese. The Mediterranean marinade consists of garlic, capsicum, basil and oregano. This product was launched with two companions:
- Fresh Salad Bocconcini with Basil Marinade
- Fresh Salad Bocconcini with Italian Herb Marinade
“By offering a fresh herb marinade, we are enhancing our much loved bocconcini with the clean, delicious flavours of fresh herbs. As we all know, herbs and cheese are a match made in heaven and Fresh Salad Bocconcini with Mediterranean Marinade plays to the strength of this wonderful combination,” said Marketing Coordinator Lauren Llewellyn. “We are honoured and thrilled to receive this recognition from the Sydney Royal Show for our new product.”
