Forager Project is launching its new products into the increasingly crowded plant-based cheese space. As consumers include more plant-based foods in their diets, companies are responding with a variety of offerings to meet the skyrocketing demand.
This includes seasoned food manufacturers like Tofurky, which launched Moocho, a line of dairy-free cheeses, cheesecakes and vegetable spreads, in February 2020. Follow Your Heart, which was purchased in February by Danone, has plant-based cheeses, along with its signature egg-free mayonnaise Vegenaise. Canada’s Daiya, which started offering dairy-free cheeses 10 years ago, has proven to be a consumer favorite as it adds new products to its portfolio. And Danone’s plant-based So Delicious Dairy Free brand expanded its offerings in January to include shredded and sliced cheeses.
As demand increases, many companies have indicated they plan to build our their plant-based offerings. In August, Good Planet added Bart Adlam as CEO. The seasoned executive is familiar with the dairy space, having worked at Icelandic yogurt maker Siggis where he helped grow it into a $150 million brand before it was purchased by Lactalis in 2018.
