O C G S h o w D a i l y 2 5 M o n d a y, J u n e 2 , 2 0 1 4 foodservice sizes. Klondike produces feta under the Odyssey ® brand and also packs private label. In addition to Odyssey Feta Cheese, we ventured on a new Odyssey producing Greek Yogurt starting this year. This creamy thick and tasty Greek Yogurt will be available in foodservice, industrial and retail under the Odyssey brand and private label. We are confident that the same high quality standards and care will be carried over into our Greek Yogurt. OSD: What makes your company unique? LB: We have a commitment to making great cheese, and truly have the knowl- edge and abilities to make the best feta cheese out there. Even now our fourth generation cheesemakers are in the process to apply to the Master Cheesemaker program that is only avail- able in the state of Wisconsin. We have consistently placed every year in cheese competitions. This year was particularly special since my father Ron Buholzer received the Life Member achievement award from the Wisconsin Cheese Makers Association. By diversifying into Greek Yogurt we can encompass the Mediterranean cuisine which will make us unique to some customers. For the industrial ingre- dient customer we have developed a few unique recipes that change the nutrition and body of the yogurt to adapt it for many different processes. It is that family tradition and dedica- tion that sets our products apart from other companies that may not have the same values. OSD: Are you introducing any new prod- ucts this year? LB: Our latest excitement is of course the Odyssey Greek Yogurt that is current- ly available. We have a 0 percent and 2 percent and 10 percent Plain. Flavors Klondike Cheese ( Cont'd. from p. 1) available are Blueberry, Strawberry, Raspberry, Peach, Black Cherry and Vanilla. With all the added health bene- fits of two times the protein and low fat, you can't go wrong with using our Greek Yogurt as a sour cream or mayonnaise substitute. We also have mastered an amazing tasting Fat Free Feta that is superior in the market place. Because of its great flavor, we are able expand our market to more health conscious con- sumers, and they don't have to sacrifice the flavor. OSD: Where is your current product emphasis? LB: The launch of our Greek Yogurt has been the main focus, but from there we will be exploring Greek Yogurt dips and spreads. Exploring new avenues and recipes to include Greek Yogurt as an ingredient, but also you can eat by itself with some fresh fruit. We are also seeing tremendous growth in our crumbled feta products across all categories. In order to keep up with increasing demand, we have installed more packaging lines that will help us get through the summer's busy season. OSD: Compare the position of your products and their technology against the current market. LB: We built the Greek Yogurt plant to be very flexible so that we are able to create custom formulations that are available to meet a customer's specific challenge. To complement our ability to make custom formulation in our production plant we also have a pilot plant. The pilot plant's equipment mirrors the production plant just on a much smaller scale. In the pilot plant we are able to run small batches so we can work with our customers to devel- op a Greek Yogurt that meets their needs.
