Artisanal Brands, formerly known as American Home Foods Products, has entered into a distribution agreement with Cheezwhse.

With it recent acquisition of Boston-based Crystal Foods, Cheezwhse is now one of the US’s leading cheese importers and distributors to the retail sector.

Daniel Dowe, president and CEO of Artisanal said: “This distribution partnership is a valuable component of our ongoing retail initiative, particularly related to the expansion of our new CheeseClock by Artisanal retail programme.

Cheezwhse services around 2,000 retail stores in the Greater New York and New England markets as well as select retail accounts across the country, with a customer base comprised primarily of independently-owned stores.

“We are enthusiastic about this partnership with Cheezwhse and its potential to introduce the Artisanal brand to a new audience of customers,” Dowe added.
