Four Kroger Associates Named Certified Cheese Professionals

CINCINNATI, Sept. 26, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- The Kroger Co. (NYSE: KR) announced today that four associates have been named Certified Cheese Professionals™ by the American Cheese Society.

Kroger associates Marcella Wright ( Portland, OR), Mark Lucier ( Cincinnati, OH), Logan Class ( Dayton, OH), and Brandon Schilling ( Atlanta, GA) have joined the ranks of an elite group of 253 individuals who have passed the Certified Cheese Professional™ Exam. The exam was created by the American Cheese Society to promote the large and comprehensive world of cheeses and encourage food industry professionals to master the knowledge.

"We are proud of Marcella, Mark, Logan and Brandon for dedicating themselves to their craft and sharing their passion for cheese with our customers," said Margaret McClure, Kroger's vice president of deli/bakery. "Their designation as Certified Cheese Professionals is an inspiration to Kroger's many talented cheese stewards who take pride in delighting our customers."

With U.S. per capita cheese consumption at all-time highs and projected to grow, Kroger is committed to being the destination for cheese. Through an exclusive partnership with New York's Greenwich Village-based Murray's Cheese, the Kroger family of stores hosts more than 89 Murray's Cheese shops in stores from coast-to-coast.
