    NUMU’s first product is vegan mozzarella made with potato starch, soybeans, and coconut oil. It is Kosher and free of nuts and GMOs. The company was founded by Gunars Elmuts, who struggled to find pizzerias that offered non-dairy cheese after going vegan in 2011.

It is available for foodservice in both shreds and blocks, suitable for pizzas, lasagnas, and sandwiches. The company says it is also working on the development of further cheese products.
