ITALIAN CHEESE COMPANIES AND EXCLUSIVE ATALANTA PARTNER AGRIFORM AND PARMAREGGIO MERGE

February 23 2021

Elizabeth, NJ— In January 2021, Agriform and Parmareggio, two Veneto and Emilia Romagna Italian cheese companies, merged to create the world's largest Italian PDO cheese outfit. Pioneers in the Italian cheese exporting industry, Agriform has been exporting the finest quality Italian cheeses for over 30 years to more than 50 countries worldwide.

Agriform produces a variety of PDO cheeses, including Grana Padano, Parmigiano Reggiano, Asiago Fresco, Piave, Gorgonzola, Provolone, Pecorino Romano and Mascarpone. The company distributes over 25 million pounds of their two most popular DOP items, Grana Padano and Parmigiano Reggiano. Agriform is an exclusive partner with Atalanta. Headquartered in Modena, Parmareggio includes the Parmareggio, Parmissimo, Unigrana, and Cuor di Fette brands. In 2019, Parmareggio and Grandi Salumifici Italiani merged to become the Bonterre Group. The Agriform and Parmareggio merger consists of a three-year plan, which will debut with a turnover of almost 600 million euros.

"With this merger, Agriform and Parmareggio created a formidable network of farmers, cheesemakers, aging, cutting & processing facilities throughout northern Italy. Both companies are cooperative farmers and cheesemakers, so they have a similar history," says Andrea Berti, Atalanta Director of Business Development. "The newly formed company will allow Atalanta to offer more options in the Italian Cheese Category. We are excited to be working with Agriform and Parmareggio going forward."

Both companies are known for their commitment to superior quality. Together, the Agriform and Parmareggio production chains comprise over 2,000 breeders and about 20 dairies. Their joint cooperative roots and commercial networks will create an even stronger, more valuable company now and for years to come.

A NEW KIND OF FOOD EXPERIENCE

February 17 2021

Elizabeth, NJ— At Atalanta, our vision is to be a part of every food experience. Food connects us all, and the recent pandemic has reminded us that those deeper connections are what's truly important. "We miss creating the connections that we are used to creating. So in 2021, our 76th year of doing business, we have evolved to find new ways to celebrate and showcase the wonderful products from our supplier partners that help nourish communities all across the country," says Tom Gellert,

President of Atalanta Corporation. As an importer, Atalanta often relies on trade shows to showcase their vast portfolio. When all travel halted last year, the organization was forced to re-evaluate and find innovative ways to connect with their customers. Director of Marketing, Marissa DeMaio highlighted, "We're an organization that's well known for our presence at trade shows. Whether it's SFA's Fancy Food Shows, Pizza Expo, or IDDBA shows, we're a staple on many show floors where we can showcase the latest products and marketing support we can provide."

In seeking to deliver the trade show experience virtually, Atalanta enlisted the support of Virtually Anywhere to recreate this connection point. Together, they launched a virtual showroom, inspired by the cobblestone streets of Europe, to engage customers anytime, anywhere. This 360-degree virtual showroom makes it easy to have their latest innovation, trends, and marketing support at your fingertips. Stroll through Italy, Holland, Switzerland and more.

ATALANTA PARTNERS with FRENCH BRAND ENTREMONT

January 20 2021

Elizabeth, NJ— Atalanta is proud to announce The French Connection, a retail and foodservice marketing campaign launching this January that features Entremont French cheeses and authentic French Dijon mustards, extra virgin olive oils, wine vinegars and sea salt. Entremont, the Flagship of the First French Dairy Coop: Sodiaal, is committed to crafting cheeses with French milk from our cooperative dairy farms. Meaning "between mountains," Entremont started in 1948 when the three Entremont brothers, François, Marius and Edouard, began maturing and selling Emmental in Annecy, in the heart of French Alps. With a focus on quality and transparent traceability, Atalanta is proud to represent Entremont's portfolio of cheeses.

Marissa DeMaio, Atalanta's Marketing Director, explains the Entremont French Connection marketing campaign. "We are so excited about launching this campaign to educate consumers on these authentic French cheeses and French specialties. We want consumers to not merely pick up an item such as Brie or Comte to try; we want them to "connect" to the authentic story, to the producer and to learn how to enjoy all of these items together in a genuinely French-inspired food experience."

Perrine Beurey, Retail Trade Marketing Manager at Sodiaal explains their mission, "Thanks to our sourcing locally in France, we provide a wide variety of PDO, PGI and specialty cheeses that reflect our unique land and know-how. Our mission is to bring people together through a shared love of cheese. Joins us on a journey through the mountains and valleys of France and discover a world of fine cheeses."

Entremont's Swiss-style Emmental is made with fresh milk collected from Sodiaal family farms and then ripened on spruce boards in their temperature-controlled cheese cave in the French Alps and east of France.

The brand's Comté PDO is crafted in the Franche-Comté. Family farmers pool their milk and transform it into delicious cheese in the region's fruitières, or traditional dairies. During months of ripening on natural wood, expert cheese agers coax out a symphony of complex flavors and aromas.

Entremont's Brie is a true treat. Enriched with cream, it has a luxuriously smooth texture.The Brie is the newest addition to the line and is available in 3kg and 1kg formats.

The French Connection will also spotlight favorite French grocery items: Edmond Fallot Dijon Mustard from Burgundy, A L'Olivier Vinegars and Oils from Provence, and Esprit du Sel sea salt from Île de Ré. The French Connection campaign will span both foodservice and retail. The campaign is focused on product training and educating customers on the use of the products. Participating accounts will receive merchandising kits that include shelf danglers, recipe cards, deli signs, aprons, cheese knives and assorted gifts to help celebrate these exceptional items.
