All of the new items are available exclusively through DCI and can be found in select retailers nationwide.

  • Nikos fetas are made in Wisconsin by Certified Master Cheesemakers and feature a soft and crumbly texture and a pleasantly mild, slightly tangy flavor. Nikos Crumbled Fat Free Feta, available in a 6 ounce cup, allows health-conscious consumers to enjoy traditional, full-flavored feta without the guilt. Nikos Feta in Brine, available in a 4 pound pail, extends the brand's Mediterranean-styled offerings to discerning foodservice customers.
  • Landana Red Pesto is a Dutch gouda-styled cheese crafted with tomatoes, oregano and garlic to yield a robust flavor profile. This colorful, eye-catching cheese is available in 7 ounce wedges in re-sealable parchment bags.
  • Alexis de Portneuf Bleubry™ marries the best attributes of soft and blue cheeses to produce a delightfully temperate flavor that is not too salty and a delicately smooth and creamy texture.
  • Crowned Best Cheese in the World at the 2009 World Cheese Awards, Alexis de Portneuf Le Cendrillon™ is a vegetable ash-covered goat cheese that features a smooth ivory body and an appealingly acidulous, semi-strong taste.
  • Alexis de Portneuf Saint-Honore™ triple creme brie is richly flavored with an incredibly smooth texture.
  • Alexis de Portneuf Snow Goat's® Triple Cream Brie is Canada's first triple creme brie made from a combination of goat's and cow's milk. This soft-bodied cheese has a rich and creamy body and a flavorful, ripened surface.
  • A Gold winner at the 2011 World Cheese Awards, DuVillage 1860 Moon Dust™ is a delicious triple creme cheese that is coated in ash. Moon Dust features a harmony of delicate acidity that is accentuated with peppery and buttery hints.
  • DuVillage 1860 Sir Laurier d'Arthabaska® is a supple, washed-rind cheese with a distinctive full-bodied flavor. It exudes an intense, penetrating aroma that is robust yet clean.
