FRESH TALK By Natalie Taylor
The 108-year-old farmer-owned cooperative from Oregon, Tillamook County Creamery
Association, has unveiled a complete reformulation of its shredded cheese products.
Tillamook Farmstyle Cut Shredded Cheeses come in a hand-grated texture that is ideal
for melting and stretching. The new product will replace Tillamook’s fine-cut shredded cheese
line and contains no cellulose preservatives. Like all
Tillamook products, Farmstyle Cut Shreds is made
using milk from cows not treated with artificial growth
hormones and without any artificial colors or flavors.
Additionally, Tillamook debuted a new flavor of
shredded cheese in response to increased consumer
demand for white cheddars. Tillamook Sharp White
Farmstyle Cut Shredded Cheese offers an alternative to award-winning, naturally aged Tillamook Sharp
White Cheddar Cheese, which is available in 7-ounce
and 2-pound blocks.
“We’ve found that families want to make everyday
meals taste better and be proud of the food that they
cook,” says Sibel Candemir, cheese category manager at
Tillamook. “As a farmer-owned co-op, we believe that
consumers shouldn’t have to compromise convenience
for quality, which is how many shoppers feel in the
existing shredded cheese aisle. Our goal is to provide
a product that is both premium and convenient, and
these shreds are just that. With more cheese in each
bite, our new Farmstyle Cut makes every dish more
melty and cheesy than ever before, whether you’re mak-
ing casseroles, mac and cheese or quesadillas.”
Farmstyle Cut Shreds are now available in 10 vari-
eties: Sharp Yellow Cheddar, Cheddar Jack, Mexican
4 Cheese, Mexican 2 Cheese, Sharp White Cheddar,
Medium Yellow Cheddar, Triple Cheddar, Italian Blend,
Mozzarella and Colby Jack.
