Northwoods Cheese Company Review
Gift basket companies rely upon our suppliers to make our businesses work. We need quality products, at a reasonable price, that will make good gift basket material. People want their gift baskets to look good and to contain products that taste good. So finding a good gift basket product supplier is a difficult but important part of the gift basket business. When you find such a gift basket vendor, it’s important you hang onto them.
Northwoods Cheese Company is just such a company. They provide their customers with top-notch products at an affordable price. And then they go the extra mile to provide the best customer support. If you haven’t gotten to know Derek Thielke, with Northwoods Cheese Company, you’re missing out. Derek will treat you with courtesy and respect, and he’ll bend over backwards to make sure you get your product, get it on time and are satisfied with the product once it arrives.
Northwoods Cheese Company Meets Gift Basket Company Standards
When shopping for gift basket products, you should have your own checklist of criteria to make sure a company meets your standards. Of course the list will look slightly different for each company depending on your philosophy, product line, pricing standards and customers. But some important factors to consider are:
- pricing – Remember, your company has to make money too. So you’ve got to get products for a reasonable price.
- taste – When it comes to food products, you only want to deal with companies that carry good-tasting food. Of course, you’ll have to try it first to make sure it meets up to your standards. (It’s a rough job, but…)
- appearance – This one is often overlooked. Gift baskets are not just about sustenance. Gift baskets are an art-form, and you are dealing with a very visual product. Each product in your basket should add to the overall visual appeal of the basket.
Northwoods Cheese Company Supports Their Community
Something you often don’t discover about your gift basket product vendors is their community involvement. It’s hard enough researching the three items listed above. So let me tell you a little something about Northwoods Cheese Company. They support their community and provide jobs not only for their employees, but also for local citizens with disabilities. Northwoods Cheese Company partners with Greenco Industries Inc. to “enable people with disabilities to contribute back to the community and achieve dignity through work.” So your purchase of the Northwoods Cheese Company products is good for you, good for your company, good for the community and, of course, good for the lucky gift basket recipients.

These products provide all the benefits described above plus they provide employment for community members as well as save you time. (especially around the busy holiday season)
