Cut and Wrap
The development of DPI’s cheese products have been over 45 years in the making. In this time, DPI has cultivated a vast network of international cheese experts who seek out new and unique products, as well as monitoring the quality and the market price of existing brands.
DPI has culled the finest cheese from around the world including France, Ireland, UK, Spain, Switzerland, Denmark, Italy, and Greece. From these regions we offer a wide variety of specialty cheeses such as, Fresh, Soft Ripen, Washed Rind, Blue Cheese, Goat Cheese, Semi Soft, and Hard Cheeses.
DPI’s cut and wrap programs offer significant advantages for customers including a reduction of in-store labor while still preserving the look and feel of store wrapped product. The DPI cheese rooms are food grade production facilities which offer a range of packaging options including saran wrapped, vacuum packed and pre-priced labeling. There is a significant shelf life advantage for cut product through the DPI cheese room compared to cutting at store level which in turns reduces shrink for the retailer
