I’ve been ordering Merkts® spreadable cheddar cheese for over five years. When the pandemic hit. It hit us hard. We had to make drastic changes and shift to take-home focused meals. We created meal kits for employees to bring home at the end of the day or order for delivery (depending on distance). And Merkts cheese not only tastes great, but it also maintains its integrity in each to-go menu item.
