As the U.S. population has become increasingly diverse, ethnic flavors have penetrated every segment of foodservice.

You can help foodservice operators take advantage of popular flavor trends with ease by offering product solutions from Land O’Lakes Foodservice that are made specifically to perform in the professional kitchen.

While Italian and Mexican cuisines continue to rank among the top ethnic choices, cuisines from South America and other regions are also growing in popularity. New Land O'Lakes® Sharp Cheddar American and soon-to-be-released Italian Blend Cheese Products are perfect for creating menu items like Ratatouille Beef Sandwich and Pita Nachos because they deliver the inspiring flavor of natural cheeses like Asiago, Romano, Parmesan and Cheddar with exceptional melt and performance.
