Capturing the protein-packed goodness of Hiland Dairy in seven new five-ounce packages will offer consumers tasty on-the-go options. Available in Zesty Fiesta, Garden Veggie, Peach, Strawberry, and Pineapple – each one is packed with 12-14 grams of protein. There are also two options for plain cottage cheese: small curd with 4% and 2% low-fat. The new Hiland Cheese line provides the delicious fresh flavor you expect from Hiland Dairy.

The five-ounce packages began appearing on retailers’ shelves in December. The suggested retail price is $1.29-1.39 each. The new package is perfect for lunch, pre-workout, or simply a meal on-the-go.

“Consumers continue to request high-protein products that are convenient for their busy lifestyle,” said Rick Beaman, Vice President, Hiland Dairy Foods Company, he continued “We believe that our five-ounce cottage cheese provides the perfect ‘on-the-go’ option for anyone wanting to add more protein to their diet.”

While protein makes up approximately 69% of its total calorie count, it is also a good source of other important nutrients, including calcium, phosphorus, selenium, vitamin B12, and riboflavin.

If consumers do not see the product in stores by January, they can complete a shopper request form online to print and take to their favorite grocer. https://www.hilanddairy.com/pdfs/hiland_shopper_request_form.pdf
