Columbus Craft Meats, the fastest growing deli meat brand in the U.S.1, has launched two delicious new snack lines. Snacking is a huge trend in the U.S., and meat snacks are growing 4 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
- Italian Dry Salame rolled with Monterey Jack Cheese
For its Salame & Cheese Crisps line, Columbus has paired its salami with sourdough cheese crisps that are perfectly portioned for a quick, delicious bite. And because they don't require refrigeration, Columbus' Salame & Cheese Crisps provide a convenient, on-the-go snack. Available in the following flavors:
- Italian Dry Salame and Cheese Crisps
- Calabrese Salame and Cheese Crisps
Both snack-sized Columbus Paninos and Columbus Salame & Cheese Crisps are available now in select grocery stores across the U.S.
