RICHFIELD, Wis., February 18, 2010 – DCI Cheese Company (DCI) is pleased to introduce an extension to its Organic Creamery line: Organic American cheese slices available in eight-slice straight stack and 16-slice twin stack packs. The new pasteurized process slices are available in the specialty cheese section of select retailers across the country.

Organic Creamery cheeses are produced in a manner that is beneficial to the health and welfare of people, animals and the environ¬ment. All products are hand-crafted by award winning Wisconsin cheesemakers with 100% certified organic milk. The fresh milk used in production is sourced from family farms that practice humane animal management and pasture grazing and is free of pesticides, antibiotics and hormones. Additionally, no animal rennet or artificial colorings are used during production. Organic Creamery cheeses proudly display the USDA organic seal.

DCI has been at the forefront of the organic cheesemaking trend. Recognizing the demand for organic milk nationwide, DCI was quick to source its own organic milk supply to ensure volume to meet customer demand for high quality organic cheese.
