WHAT OUR PARTNERS SAY

"When we decided to make our Aged Brick Cheese into a cold pack cheese spread, we knew Pine River was the company to get it done. The project was a collaboration from day one, with Pine River’s licensed cheese graders working with us to ensure we achieved the flavor and consistency we wanted. Pine River listened to our feedback and together we made an award-winning product. Our Aged Brick Cold Pack Cheese Spread took 1st Place in 2017 U.S. Championship Cheese Contest."

"I never thought I’d do a cheese spread, but I had an opportunity to partner with Pine River and I couldn’t pass that up. We decided to make our popular Colby Swiss into a cheese spread and Pine River really focused on making sure the flavor profile stayed true to the natural taste of our Colby Swiss. The sales and response were really good, so it’s a product that we’ll carry at our store and hopefully take to retail in the future."
