Topco Associates, Cornershop Cuts Delicatessen


Topco Associates touts its Cornershop Cuts Delicatessen assortment as offering superior flavors, aromas, freshness and selection of a premium deli experience — all at a better price than leading national or regional brands. By curating a wide selection of high-quality meats, cheeses and other products, Cornershop Cuts provides shoppers an everyday indulgence that appeals to their pursuit of taste and quality at a price that’s pleasing to their budgets.

Additionally, Cornershop Cuts offers an Organics sub-brand with premium, certified organic deli products, as well as a Naturals sub-brand that includes premium deli meat products raised without antibiotics. A mainstream assortment of bulk deli meats and cheeses completes the line.

Much more than simply a new brand with a pretty label, this private label assortment was carefully conceived, culminating in a true “difference maker” for Topco members and shoppers. Rising to the challenges of marketplace consolidation, increased category costs, supplier minimums and quality consistency, Cornershop Cuts Delicatessen represents the power of aggregation for Topco members.

Its ability to be a winning solution within a non-traditional space for retailers, suppliers and shoppers alike makes Cornershop Cuts a game changer in deli.
