USA, Hayward, California. Columbus Craft Meats, the fastest growing deli meat brand in the U.S.1, has launched two new snack lines. This was reported by PR Newswire.
Snacking is a huge trend in the U.S., and meat snacks are growing four times faster than potato chips as consumers look for high-protein alternatives. "People continue to replace traditional meals with snacks, and now we offer Columbus' delicious salami products in a snack size to enjoy while on-the-go" says Columbus CEO, Joe Ennen.
Contributing to Columbus' rapid growth are new products, like Paninos – bite-sized rolls of salumi and cheese – which have grown over 800% since launching in 2016. Columbus now offers Paninos in snack-sized packages of two: Genoa Salame rolled with Mozzarella Cheese, Hot Sopressata rolled with Mozzarella Cheese, Prosciutto rolled with Mozzarella Cheese and Italian Dry Salame rolled with Monterey Jack Cheese.
For its Salame & Cheese Crisps line, the company has paired its salami with sourdough cheese crisps. And because they don't require refrigeration, Columbus' Salame & Cheese Crisps provide a convenient, on-the-go snack. They are available in the flavors Italian Dry Salame and Cheese Crisps and Calabrese Salame and Cheese Crisps.
