SXSW gets an upgrade thanks to Creminelli Fine Meats

Who doesn’t love a good upgrade? This year, Creminelli Fine Meats made SXSW even more delicious by offering to upgrade any unopened snack to their artisan charcuterie-grade snacks.

Attendees flocked to Brush Square Park in Austin to trade in their candy bars for Garlic & Wine Salami Minis and their chips for salami sticks made with organic spices and imported Italian Grana Padano cheese. The perfect protein pick-me-ups for on-the-go snacking.

Thankfully, no snack went wasted. Creminelli donated all the packaged food that was turned in to Keep Austin Fed, a local food rescue non-profit organization dedicated to reducing hunger by connecting surplus food with neighbors in need.  

Keep Austin Fed ( turned out to be the perfect partner for Creminelli, not only for their commitment to their community but their commitment to the environment as well. Recently, Creminelli launched a new program guaranteeing that 80% of the plastic in their trays comes from recycled plastic. That’s equivalent to over 11million water bottles that won’t end up in oceans or landfills. 

Since 2006, Creminelli has continued to innovate and elevate the charcuterie and snacking industry, winning 11 National Food Awards. That award-winning passion and artistry can be experienced in all their snack offerings including their Salami Minis featuring a variety of flavors such as Whiskey, Chipotle, and Parmesan; and high-quality snack trays featuring savory uncured Italian meats with a wide variety of cheeses sourced from the US and around the world.

This summer, Creminelli Fine Meats will be giving away upgraded snacks all around the country. You can find them at CMA Fest June 9th-12th in Nashville where snacks will be donated to Musically Fed (, and at Austin’s KetoCon July 8th-10th and the Park City Wine Festival September 29th-October 1st giving away product with a chance to win $500 in Creminelli foods.
