Following a very successful launch of their boxed mac and cheese last year, Cabot Creamery Co-operative has just introduced a microwavable mac & cheese four-cup pack. The four 2.05-ounce cups packs come in three distinctly Cabot flavors – Seriously Sharp Cheddar, Yellow Cheddar, and American Cheese. Each cup is made with genuine, award-winning premium Cabot Cheese.
The Microwavable 4-pack Mac & Cheese Cups are a collaboration between Cabot Creamery Co-operative and The Farmer Companies a diversified private equity firm headquartered in Burlington, Vermont founded in 2018 to leverage a brands’ value into new categories, and its newest division, Vermont Cheese Products, Inc. (VCPI). The first license by VCPI covers a line of specially branded consumer snack products under the Cabot brand, held by Agri-Mark, the Northeast’s premier dairy cooperative, and now includes microwavable Mac & Cheese cups as part of their line of convenient snacks and ready-to-make meals featuring world famous Cabot Cheese.
“We are pleased to introduce Cabot microwavable Mac & Cheese in convenient 4-packs," said Adam Weber, The Farmer Companies Director, and Senior Vice President of Sales, “Now consumers can enjoy the fabulous taste of our classic boxed Mac & Cheese in our convenient and portable microwavable cups. You can microwave one for a fast snack or more than one for a fast, satisfying hot meal.”
Nationally recognized lifestyle and social media maven Candace Karu loves Cabot Mac & Cheese cups for their convenience and great taste. “Wholesome ingredients that deliver protein and minerals as well as that great Cabot cheese flavor, make these handy Mac & Cheese cups perfect for an after-school snack or a quick lunch on the run.”
“Our farmers are truly excited to introduce our microwavable Mac & Cheese,” said Amber Sheridan, Cabot’s Director of Corporate Communications. “Life can be very hectic so we think consumers will truly enjoy the convenience and time savings of our microwavable cups. They’re easy to make and taste delicious. That’s a powerfully delicious combination.”
The new 4-pack Cabot microwavable Mac & Cheese cups are distributed through Associated Grocers of New England (AGNE) to retailers located in Maine, New Hampshire, Vermont, Connecticut, Massachusetts, and Rhode Island as well as independent grocery retailers in the Upstate New York/Albany area and Eastern Pennsylvania.
