Rougette Marinated Grilling Cheese launches in UK

Rougette Marinated Grilling Cheeses are savoury semi-soft cheese, pre-marinated and available in two flavours; Herb Marinade and Bell Pepper Marinade.   

The brand has secured distribution partnerships with three of the UK’s leading dairy wholesalers; Carron Lodge, Rowcliffe and Hawkridge.

This innovative continental cooking cheese range is a great addition to the growing hot cheese category and adds something new and exciting for consumers.  

Rougette Marinated Grilling Cheese is a unique feta-style cheese made using traditional methods by Käserei Champignon, a cheese producer in Bavaria, Germany. Käserei Champignon is a family-owned company that has made the finest speciality cheeses for over 100 years.

Catherine Duffy, sales and marketing manager Elite Imports Ltd said: “We’re excited to be adding to our range of award-winning continental cheeses from our partners Kaserei Champignon. The Rougette Marinated Grilling Cheeses add an innovative and delicious twist to BBQs and summer meals which are sure to inspire consumers. 

We are supporting the launch a dedicated Rougette web presence along with a how-to-cook video to help inspire consumers.  We are planning to expand our Rougette cheese range even further as new pre-marinated flavours are being developed.”

Just in time for summer, the cheeses are perfect for accompanying a summer salad or alongside roasted meats and vegetables on the BBQ. Handily packaged in an aluminium tray, this cheese is ready to go straight on the BBQ or in the oven.

“We’re excited to see our Rougette Marinated Grilling Cheeses bring family and friends together this summer,” says Mick Acuta, sales manager at Elite Imports Ltd. “Now cheese lovers can enjoy natural, speciality cheeses in a totally new way.”

The Herb Marinade flavour was awarded 1 star at the Great Taste Awards 2021 with judges commenting that it was; “A delightfully aromatic grilling cheese…rather more approachable and easy on the palate than a traditional halloumi. Great for topping a moussaka, but also really enjoyable on crusty bread or crunchy biscuits.”
