RICHFIELD, Wis., April 29, 2011 – DCI Cheese Company (“DCI”) is pleased to unveil “Goodness. Naturally.”, an enter-to-win contest sponsored by Organic Creamery, the most extensive line of certified organic cheese varieties in the United States. One Grand Prize winner will receive a $500 gift card that can be used to purchase a variety of items for their garden. Additionally, the full line of Organic Creamery cheeses is receiving redesigned product packaging that highlights the eco-friendly, hand-made nature of the brand.

Organic Creamery cheeses are produced in a manner that is beneficial to the health and welfare of people, animals and the environment. 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.

“Matching Organic Creamery cheese with home-grown produce is a great way to ensure that the food your family consumes is as close to nature as possible,” says Katie Jury, Marketing Manager at DCI. “This contest gives one winner ‘seed money’ they can use to start their own eco-friendly garden.”

Details about the Organic Creamery “Goodness. Naturally.” promotion, including full contest rules, will be available on the contest website (http://www.OrganicCreameryCheese.com) throughout the promotion. Organic Creamery’s new packaging is available to consumers at select retailers nationwide.
