Cacique® Partners with the Culinary Institute of America
Cacique, a Mexican-style cheese that is trusted among both Hispanic and non-Hispanic consumers, provided a Gift In-kind to The Culinary Institute of America and starting this month, the culinary college and its chefs will be using Cacique® branded products in many of their food preparation and instructional classes. “The support of organizations like Cacique is critical when training the next generation of great chefs,” said Victor Gielisse, Vice President of Advancement and Business Development at the college. “The CIA has a tremendous reputation for the education that we provide to our students, and the support that we receive from Cacique will allow the college to continue to grow and innovate in the future.” Through the support of Cacique, the CIA will provide its students and chefs with choices and ingredients familiar with a growing and influential Hispanic consumer, and the shifting and evolving tastes of the American diner. “In partnering with the CIA, we are able to provide our authentic products to the kitchen classrooms where students are first exposed to high quality ingredients while developing their culinary skills. The use of our Cacique® products throughout the CIA system validates the authenticity our brand represents to the multicultural consumers, who seek familiar quality,
ingredients and flavors,” said Tirso Iglesias, Vice President of Sales and Marketing at Cacique, Inc.
