Farm Rich, one of America's "cheesiest" frozen snack brands, has announced a nationwide search for a cheese-eating, content-creating individual to join its ranks as the very first Chief Cheese Officer (CCO). The search started on none other than National Cheese Day, June 4, and is open through July 7, 2021.

"We're ready to give one of our lucky fans a chance to bring their ideas to life in the role of Chief Cheese Officer."

The applicant with the most impressive cheese-loving credentials will be bestowed the title of Honorary Chief Cheese Officer and receive $5,000, plus a vacation to Georgia's beautiful St. Simons Island, home to Farm Rich headquarters.

There, the CCO will have the chance to tour the Farm Rich plant where America's favorite Mozzarella Sticks are made and collaborate with the brand team. Plus, they'll have Farm Rich cheese snacks on tap for a year…Cheese Curds, Mozz Sticks, Loaded Potato Skins, Mozz Bites, and the list goes on.

What does the gig entail? The CCO will give America another reason to celebrate cheese by helping to declare a new cheese holiday (hello, National Mozz Stick Day…or could it be Cheese for Breakfast Day?), create fun social media content for @FarmRichSnacks and suggest crave-worthy concepts for the Farm Rich snack lineup. The 45-day virtual position starts Aug. 2, 2021.

Ciera Womack, Farm Rich Director of Marketing, says if you have the cheese to be CCO, then apply now. "Farm Rich is known for its 'cheesy' snacks and appetizers and we're ready to give one of our lucky fans a chance to bring their ideas to life in the role of Chief Cheese Officer. There will be some work involved, but if you're passionate about cheese, it should hardly feel like work at all. Go ahead and apply; You might just land the cheesiest job of a lifetime!"
