PLYMOUTH, Wis., Sept. 7, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Sartori Company announced today the release date of the new Limited Edition Peppermint BellaVitano cheese. This exciting new cheese has been highly sought-after since the company's sneak preview last February.



A true Sartori original, this unique artisan cheese is crafted by hand rubbing aged BellaVitano Gold with crushed peppermint candy.  The peppermint gives the cheese a light kiss of sweetness and a bright pink hue that is sure to catch the eye, creating a unique cheese with a creamy, crumbly texture that starts with a subtle fruity note and ends with a tangy bite. 

Sartori is honored to announce that a portion of all the proceeds of this exciting pink cheese will be donated to the National Breast Cancer Foundation, Inc.® in support of breast cancer awareness.  The National Breast Cancer Foundation was established in 1991 by breast cancer survivor and advocate, Janelle Hail. The mission of NBCF is to save lives through early detection and to provide mammograms for those in need and includes increasing awareness through education, providing diagnostic breast care services for those in need, and providing nurturing support services.

"Our cheesemakers crafted this fun, delicious cheese with the intention of using it to help raise money for breast cancer awareness," said 3rd generation company leader, Jim Sartori.  "We couldn't have found a better partner than the National Breast Cancer Foundation, an outstanding organization dedicated to creating awareness and saving lives through early detection.  We are amazed at how many retail partners have come forward to help bring this whole program to life," notes Sartori. "It's great to see so many doing so much for a great cause." 

The Sartori Limited Edition Line is a collection of unique and premium cheese varieties inspired by the creative spirit of Sartori founder, Paolo Sartori. These special releases are meticulously crafted by Sartori cheesemakers using a blend of old world tradition coupled with American ingenuity. The cheese is only produced when the conditions are perfect and the ingredients are readily available – for this reason, Sartori Limited Edition items are made in small quantities and available seasonally. 

Sartori Limited Edition Peppermint BellaVitano cheese will be offered to specialty retailers across the United States this October, National Breast Cancer Awareness Month. The cheese will also be available again this holiday season as an exclusive member of Sartori's first ever Limited Edition gift basket.
