Michigan-based American Food Trading Corporation (AFTC) is launching in Chile a new variety of Wisconsin-produced cheese. These products will be sold by Tottus throughout the country.
Chilean consumers will have access to new and attractive products and others already known such as Cream-cheese, Parmesan, Gouda, and Mozzarella. Different varieties are American, White-American, Sharp Provolone, Gorgonzola, Mascarpone, Fontina, Asiago, Baby Swiss, and Alpine.
AFTC will sell its products in Chile under the umbrella brand “American Selection by Heartland.” The American Selection is branching into other food products as well, including but not limited to ice cream, milk, snacks, frozen meals, frozen pizzas, vegetables and fruit, and, a group of wines from California’s Sonoma and Napa Valleys.
The launch of the new cheese selection is part of the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s (USDA) efforts to promote U.S. foods exports to Chile. Over the past five years U.S. dairy exports to Chile have increased 128 percent reaching over $50 million in 2014. Those U.S. dairy exports include whey protein, cheese, non-fat dry milk and ice cream.
