PLYMOUTH, Wis., Oct. 4, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- In honor of Breast Cancer Awareness Month, Sartori has released its signature pink Limited Edition Peppermint BellaVitano for the month of October. The release marks Sartori's continued partnership with National Breast Cancer Foundation, an organization dedicated to increasing awareness, advancing education and providing support services for those impacted by the disease.
"Giving back to our community is one of our core values at Sartori," said Jeff Schwager, president of Sartori. "We're honored for the opportunity to again team up with National Breast Cancer Foundation to raise money for such a worthy cause."
Peppermint BellaVitano's eye-catching rind is the result of crushed peppermint candies that are hand-rubbed onto wheels of Sartori's award-winning Gold BellaVitano. The small-batch, artisan process imparts a pink color and pleasantly sweet flavor. Eaten by itself or enjoyed with artisan dark chocolate or a glass of wine, Peppermint BellaVitano is a creamy, complex cheese unlike any other.
Peppermint BellaVitano can be purchased in stores and online at http://shop.sartoricheese.com/. Crafted in limited quantities, this Sartori cheese is available at select retailers only throughout the month of October.
