Artisanal Premium Cheese Has New Distribution

American Home Food Products (OTCBB:AHFP), currently doing business as Artisanal Premium Cheese, today announced that it is entering a master distribution and marketing agreement with Harvest Song Ventures, LLC. Harvest Song is a specialty food company that sources organic and natural food products and provides them to consumers across several market segments.

Artisanal will continue to service the existing Harvest Song customer base and expects to expand that base by marketing Harvest Song products to Artisanal’s customers ranging from premium restaurants and hotels to luxury goods retailers. The companies also plan to expand and create cross-selling opportunities for the two product lines which have natural pairing complements. Artisanal has long offered condiments with its line of over 200 handcrafted cheeses from around the world and Harvest Song’s all natural preserves and vegetable products are an excellent addition.

Daniel W. Dowe, President and Chief Executive Officer of Artisanal commented, “We are enthused at the prospect of working with Harvest Song and its founder, Sylvia Tirakian, who has exceptional capability to work with artisan food makers to bring amazing food products to market. Artisanal expects to see a significant increase in sales from the Harvest Song line resulting from shared product development responsibilities and the consolidation of costs. Our companies share the same focus on premium quality products and our most demanding chef customers exalt at the quality and sensational taste of the Harvest Song products. “

Mr. Dowe continued, “With the challenging economic situation at hand, we believe consumers will move to replicate restaurant quality dining experiences while remaining at home. Likewise, the American palate is growing more knowledgeable and demanding about the origins of food from quality to presentation. Harvest Song and Artisanal Premium Cheeses are affordable luxuries by all measures and in addition to increasing their availability in the marketplace, we will also offer formalized pairing concepts to enable our customers to achieve a fuller culinary experience when consuming Artisanal and Harvest Song products together.
