GOOD PLANeT Foods, producer of plant-based cheese products, is tapping into what it’s calling an “underdeveloped plant-based cheese market” with a new product line: olive oil cheese.
In a recent announcement, CEO Bart Adlam affirmed the company’s commitment to address the demand from flexitarian consumers. He claims that products being ‘plant-based’ or ‘dairy-free’ may not be enough to sway them towards alternatives, especially if the products contain saturated fats.
Adlam commented, “We listened hard and heard consumers’ concerns. Our answer is to reimagine cheese, offering delicious products that have minimal saturated fat and are based on sustainable superfood consumers know and love, olive oil.”
The new olive oil cheese line comes in three varieties, including cheese shreds, cubes, and blocks, all available in different varieties like Greek-style feta, Italian-style mozzarella, and sharp cheddar. They are set to be available in the coming weeks at prominent retailers across the US, including Whole Foods Market, Sprouts Farmers Market, Wegmans Food Markets, and more.
GOOD PLANeT Foods has been a notable player in the American plant-based cheese industry since its launch in 2018. Its lines of snackable vegan cheese triangles, smoked cheese wheels, plant-based snack packs, and now, olive oil cheese, are allergen-free, made without soy, wheat, peanuts, gluten, or other common allergens. “We are committed to expanding the plant-based cheese segment by breaking new ground and offering consumers new ways to enjoy allergen- and dairy-free cheese,” commented Adlam.
Sample at Expo East
GOOD PLANeT Foods will also be at Expo East from September 20-23 at the Philadelphia Convention Center, where attendees can sample the olive oil cheeses and learn more about the company’s dedication to providing healthier and more sustainable cheese alternatives.
