It’s no surprise that charcuterie board businesses saw a boom during the pandemic. Customers sought out healthy, creative takeout options, and charcuterie filled that niche nicely. With a variety of cheeses, meats, vegetables, fruits, nuts, olives, spreads, and crackers, there is truly something for everyone with charcuterie.
A Growing Industry
As sales of charcuterie-style packaged snacks and meals have recently reached $378M, it’s predicted that the industry can see growth well into the future. Charcuterie boards are eco-friendly and nutritious while capitalizing on snacking (and who doesn’t enjoy snacking).
Charcuterie has evolved far beyond traditional cheese and crackers. Boards now feature different innovative flavors, and there’s something for everyone of every dietary discipline. These aesthetically pleasing boards have visual appeal, making them a great addition to both special occasions and everyday activities.
Customers love that they can place customized orders online and in-store while taking advantage of in-house delivery options. A sampling of our dedicated customer base includes families looking to spice up special occasions, couples who fancy a romantic picnic, businesses that want to show their appreciation to employees and clients, church and community groups in need of catering, and people with special dietary restrictions.
It’s easy to see why these unique and affordable solutions are part of a growing industry.
