Kirkland Signature, sold exclusively by Costco, has gained its reputation for offering exceptional products in, practically, all the categories in the supermarkets’ industry. The brand’s commitment to quality, affordability, and customer satisfaction sets it apart from the competition. But, how does Kirkland manage to do that? It’s not magic, it’s pure strategy.
Despite their superior quality, Kirkland Signature products are reasonably priced. And the chain manage to do that by partnering with the best producers in the world, just to sell the products under the low-cost brand. These collaborations ensure that customers receive products that meet the highest standards and reflect the expertise of trusted industry leaders. Recently, we’ve discovered the Italian company that produces the top-quality Costco’s Parmigiano-Reggiano Cheese.
This is the Italian company behind Costco’s Parmigiano-Reggiano
One example of Kirkland Signature’s association with top manufacturers can be seen in their Parmigiano-Reggiano hard cheese. Costco has partnered with Formaggi Zanetti, an Italian brand that has been in the cheese business for five generations since its founding in the late nineteenth century. Formaggi Zanetti is renowned as the top exporter of Italian cheese, and their affiliation with Kirkland Signature is proudly noted on the packaging of the Parmigiano-Reggiano cheese.
As a family-owned company, they have honed their cheese-making skills and traditions over the course of five generations. This legacy of excellence is reflected in their Parmigiano-Reggiano cheese, which is sought after by cheese connoisseurs worldwide. This cheese works great in pasta, in risotto or even in more complex recipes such as focaccia or breads. You can add it to as many recipes as you can think of. You can even make a little fusion food by scratching a little on tacos, giving it a savory and a particular umami touch that you haven’t tried before.
Other Kirkland products that you didn’t know were made by world-famous brands
The Kirkland Signature Organic Extra Virgin Olive Oil is produced by a renowned Italian manufacturer from the region of Puglia, known for its expertise in olive oil production. With a legacy spanning generations, this manufacturer adheres to traditional cultivation and harvesting methods to create an olive oil that embodies the authentic essence of Mediterranean cuisine. The oil is manufactured and bottled in the regions of Bari and Barletta-Andria-Trani. Also, Costco produced olive oil in Greece, after a bad season in 2014, when there was a pest of flies that affected the production in the area.
Kirkland’s coffee is also made by one of the best brands in the world. The product is none other than the factory that makes Starbucks’ best coffees. And you’ll even get the satisfaction seal of Juan Valdez, one of the best Colombian growers and exporters.
So, the next time you go shopping at Costco, and you decide on Kirkland Signature products, don’t think that you are buying trinkets: they are as good as the most fancy brands, or even better, and you will be paying the best price on the market.
