PLYMOUTH, Wis., Aug. 22, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Sartori Cheese announced today their Limited Edition Peppermint BellaVitano cheese will again be released for the month of October in support of Breast Cancer Awareness month. Sartori will donate a portion of all proceeds from this cheese to the National Breast Cancer Foundation.
This unique artisan cheese is crafted by hand-rubbing an aged BellaVitano Gold wheel with crushed Peppermint candy. The rich, fruitiness of the BellaVitano works well with the sweet, minty notes from the candies, creating a one-of-a-kind cheese with a crumbly texture and tangy bite.
"October is Breast Cancer Awareness month, and we felt our pink hued cheese was a great tribute to that cause," says Chad Vincent, Sartori Chief Marketing Officer. "It's the second year Sartori has joined with the National Breast Cancer Foundation and they have been wonderful partners. It's so rewarding to see our retailers and consumers support the initiative," notes Vincent.
Sartori partnered with the National Breast Cancer Foundation last October, for Breast Cancer Awareness month, and in February, as a Valentine's Day fundraiser, raising $10,857 in total.
Sartori's Limited Edition Peppermint BellaVitano cheese will be available for purchase at specialty retailers across the United States this October. The cheese will also be available online at the Sartori Cheese Shop (www.sartoricheese.com) beginning in October.
Sartori has been producing artisan and premium cheese for seven decades for Specialty, Retail, Ingredient, Restaurant and Food Service markets. Based in Plymouth, Wisconsin, Sartori has an impressive array of award winning cheese noted for innovative approaches and consistent top quality across their entire line.
