DalterFood launches a new cut: Cheese Matchsticks
As it continues to diversify its range of products to meet industry and catering needs, Italy-headquartered dairy group DalterFood has unveiled a brand new innovation – cheese matchsticks, “a unique cut on the market,” according to the firm, “designed to guarantee the best results”.
The special feature of this new cut lies in its food design: a good thickness (3x6 mm) and a quadrangular cut help give these cheese matchsticks a unique texture, which are really enjoyable to bite into, says the company, and hold their shape well when cooked, thus maintaining their characteristic three-dimensional shape.

“DalterFood Group is the first and only company in the sector to release this new three-dimensional cut for cheese, which picks up on a demand that had so far not been met among foodservice operators and food companies,” explained Elisa Flocco, DalterFood Group’s Head of Marketing. “This is just the latest outcome of our Group’s ability to keep innovating and diversifying our range of products, which is perfectly encapsulated in the variety of cuts offered and in its ability to keep creating new, original cuts”.
Unlike cheeses cut into thin, flat strips, DalterFood Group’s innovative matchsticks always stay firm and hold together well when cooked, keeping their structure and body even during long cooking processes at high temperatures. Such characteristics make them perfect as an ingredient in sauces or fillings and in any dishes where the cheese must stay intact, compact and visible.
Serving the needs of industry
This innovative cut offered by DalterFood Group adapts perfectly to the needs of food industries, particularly those that make ready meals, as it is perfect to use as a topping on pizzas and lasagne, as an ingredient in ready-made salads, soups and sauces, as well as for fillings and stuffings. Cheese matchsticks are also interesting for the world of foodservice, because they are not only handy and delicious for topping pizzas and in dishes with a set recipe, but are also great for enriching vegetable salads.
The range of cheese matchsticks offered by DalterFood Group is extensive and designed for meeting all needs. The Emilian company uses this cut for Parmigiano Reggiano of all ages and for aged Italian Spinoro cheese. It offers two different lengths (short matchsticks from 15 to 30 mm and long matchsticks from 25 to 40 mm) and five types of packs: packs, bags and round tubs just for the short version, and bags and trays for the whole range.
With the launch of this innovative cheese stick cut, DalterFood Group said it is “once again continuing to fully demonstrate its commitment to developing innovations applied to the world of cheeses, and its ability to create and provide ‘tailor-made’ solutions for its customers all around the world.”
With 160 employees, 500 products in its range and 100 million euros in consolidated revenue, 74 per cent of which is generated abroad, DalterFood Group operates in the dairy sector serving 1,500 professional customers in the large-scale retail trade, food service, food industries and normal trade in 45 different countries.
