FAQs

Your individual portions packaging indicates that Kiri is made in a plant certified ISO 14001. What does that mean?

ISO 14001 is an international standard defined by the International Organization for Standardization. Our compliance with this standard means that we integrate the notion of environmental conservation into each of our business decisions. We evaluate the effects generated by our operations on the environment and implement concrete actions to improve our practices. For example, we evaluated our energy consumption and proceeded to modify our procurement practices to reduce our impact on the environment.

At what age can kids start eating cream cheese?

We encourage you to consult your pediatrician, who can give you the best advice regarding your child’s diet based on his or her needs.

Can pregnant women eat Kiri®?

Where is Kiri® made?

Kiri® portions are produced in Sablé-sur-Sarthe, France, while the Kiri® tub is produced in Chorzele, Poland.

Why do you offer individually wrapped portions?

The individual packaging is a way of avoiding food waste because it preserves the organoleptic qualities (e.g., taste, texture, etc.) of each portion until its consumption. This avoids having to throw away leftover Kiri® if it is not consumed. Individual portions also provide an appropriate quantity of the product to avoid overconsumption.

Can we freeze Kiri® products?

Freezing is at your discretion. It is important to note that freezing this product will affect its texture because thawing a cream cheese product separates the wet ingredients from the solid ingredients. This makes the texture less pleasant and spreading more difficult but will not affect the taste. If you use Kiri® for cooking, the texture is less important, so freezing may be a good solution.

How should I store Kiri® products?

Kiri® should be kept refrigerated between 1°C and 4°C to remain fresh.

How long is a Kiri® tub good for once it’s opened?

The “best before” date is indicated on the bottom of the Kiri® tub as a guideline for optimal use. The product remains consumable after that date, but may lose its organoleptic qualities (e.g., taste, texture, etc.). Once the tub is opened, it is preferable to consume the product within the first five days for maximum freshness and quality.
