Our Capabilities Shredded cheese in packages from 1oz to 5lb packages and every size in between. We can customize cheese blends and even add spices or flavorings to your specifications. Sliced cheese cheese to your shape, size and weight specifications. Whole pieces up to 28” in length for slicing at your facility or packaged chunks to your size and weight specifications.
Shredded Cheese Pizza and salad kits aren’t complete without cheese. Larger packages are available for commissary type assembly or smaller packages for inclusion in retail kits. Some of the projects we have done include: 1oz packages of shredded parmesan for retail salads 12oz packages of shredded mozzarella for pizza kits 2lb shredded cheddar for store assembled salad kits 5lb shredded cheeses for deli salad manufacturing
Sliced Cheese Sliced cheese from MDS has a number of advantages over slicing your own. Our portion controlled slices offer 100% yield at store or plant level. Even if you slice your own meats, outsourcing your cheese will remove a number of regulatory and sanitation concerns from your plant. Natural cheese slices in 1.5lb and 3lb gas flushed packages Slices are stagger stacked for ease of use Packages are easy open so no knives or cutters are introduced to the packaging line Slice sizes, shapes and weights are fully customizable
Bulk Products Depending on your scale and style of operation, you may want to slice cheese at your facility. We offer products in extended lengths to increase productivity and trimmed products to reduce or eliminate yield loss. Slicing logs up to 39-inches make for longer runs and increased output Packaged in totes or trays to reduce cardboard consumption Available in the most popular cheese styles
Cost Controls Producing a fixed priced finished good from commodities that vary weekly or daily can be challenging. Retailer’s desire price stability, but that puts all of the commodity risk on the manufacturer. MDS can provide you with the tools to manage or eliminate commodity risks: Actual market averages from 1 to 3 months Forward pricing up to 18 months into the future Physical hedges where we purchase and store cheese at a fixed price for use in the future
