Miyoko's Creamery to Introduce Game-Changing Cheddar and Pepper Jack Cheeses and Spreadable Oat Milk Butter This Spring
SONOMA COUNTY, CA (MARCH 2, 2020) — Miyoko’s Creamery, the leading plant dairy brand
known for its award-winning vegan cheeses and butter crafted from 100% plants, is introducing
a game-changing new cheddar and pepper jack cheese, in addition to a new spreadable oat
milk butter. In consumer tastings the new cheeses meet or beat cow dairy in taste and
performance. The first of these products will begin hitting grocery store shelves across the
country this spring.
GAME-CHANGING NEW CHEESES
The cheddar and pepper jack cheese will be the first in a new line of everyday cheeses from
Miyoko’s, which has become known for its unmatched artisan cheese wheels. Made using
cultured legumes and oats, the new cheddar and pepper jack cheeses will be Miyoko’s first
nut-free vegan cheese options. Additionally, they will be priced competitively with similar organic
cow-dairy, offering a true plant-based replacement.
“We’re at a pivotal moment in the plant-based movement, where we need to start appealing
more to flexitarians by creating products that give them the taste satisfaction of the dairy
cheeses they are used to,” said Founder and CEO Miyoko Schinner, who has been a leader in
the plant-based movement for more than 30 years. “These new cheeses we’re launching have a
taste and price that make them competitive with traditional dairy, and will help us cross that
chasm to reach omnivores.”
Miyoko’s new cheddar & pepper jack cheeses taste, melt and function similar to their dairy
counterparts and so can be used in the same way as dairy cheeses, including in grilled cheese
sandwiches, quesadillas, macaroni and cheese, and in any other recipes that call for traditional
cheddar or pepper jack. Additionally, the cheeses have three grams of protein per one-ounce
serving, 10% of the daily recommended amount of calcium, and have the added benefit of also
being cholesterol-free.
Miyoko’s Cheddar and Pepper Jack launch on grocery store shelves this March 2020, and will
be available in three formats: 1 oz slices, shredded packages and 8 oz cheese blocks.
NEW SPREADABLE OAT MILK BUTTER
This spring, Miyoko’s Creamery — whose original European Style Cultured Vegan Butter is the
best selling butter alternative on the market — also introduces a spreadable oat milk butter in
two styles: Hint of Sea Salt and Garlic Parm . The spreadable format oat milk butters are
convenient to use and packed with flavor, and can be used in any way you would use regular
butter, including spread onto toast, melted onto pancakes, and for garlic bread, grilled cheeses
and more.
Miyoko’s spreadable oat milk butters hit grocery store shelves this April 2020. The classic Hint
of Salt flavor is available in 12 oz tubs, while the Garlic Parm is available in 7 oz tubs.

Miyoko’s Creamery Announces Intent to Convert Dairy Farm to Plant Agriculture Will Assist California Farmer in Becoming Part of Company’s R&D efforts, Supply Chain
Sonoma, CA – November 7, 2019 – Miyoko’s Creamery, makers of dairy products made 100%
from plants, announce their intent to work with a California dairy farmer to convert their dairy
farm to plant agriculture for human consumption. The transitioned acreage will become part of
the Company’s research and development efforts for new cheese and butter products made
from plants as well as part of the company’s supply chain for existing product.
“Farmers are struggling, farms are closing, livelihoods are threatened, and we want to help the
American farmer stay true to the land,“ said Miyoko Schinner, Founder and CEO of Miyoko’s.
“We can’t truly move to a compassionate food supply without the support and participation of
the farming community. They are integral to our ability to eliminate animal agriculture and lead
us to a compassionate and sustainable food supply.”
Advising on the effort will be Farm Sanctuary, an organization committed to ending cruelty to
farm animals and promoting compassionate vegan living through rescue , education ,
and advocacy efforts.
“We share Miyoko’s vision for a compassionate food system and are looking forward to working
with them to help farmers become part of a cruelty-free, more sustainable, plant based food
future,” said Gene Baur, co-founder of Farm Sanctuary and author of the groundbreaking book
Farm Sanctuary: Changing Hearts and Minds About Animals and Food.
Miyoko’s Creamery said they will begin the search process in early 2020. The company will
commit financial resources to the selected farm and technical expertise in addition to engaging
in a contractual agreement to become part of the Company’s research and development
process.

MIYOKO’S LAUNCHES BREAKTHROUGH CULTURED VEGAN PIZZA MOZZ FOR FOOD SERVICE
Mozzarella Style Cheese Made 100% From Plants With Taste, Performance and Texture
that Matches Cow Dairy Will Debut at Pizza My Heart in Palo Alto & Monterey, CA
February 3, 2020, SONOMA, CA — Miyoko’s Creamery, the leading plant dairy brand known
for its award-winning vegan cheeses and butter crafted 100% from plants, announced today the
launch of a new breakthrough Cultured Vegan Pizza Mozz ready for immediate delivery to the
food-service industry. The new mozzarella-style cheese tastes and performs like its cow dairy
analog and can be used for pizzas, lasagnas, Philadelphia-style cheese steak sandwiches and
Italian style dishes – anything that would require a melted mozzarella. The first food service
partner will be one of Northern California’s cult favorite pizza chains, Pizza My Heart, debuting
in their restaurants in Palo Alto, CA and Monterey, CA.
“This new mozzarella, like our new cheddar and pepper jack, is a true game-changer. Based on
the reception it has received in taste tests, we know our Cultured Vegan Pizza Mozz will appeal
to omnivores as much as it will to vegans and vegetarians,” said Miyoko Schinner, CEO and
Founder of Miyoko’s Creamery. “We’ve challenged ourselves in our research and development
with the goal of eliminating the excuses to eat more compassionately. People eat a lot of pizza
-- billions of slices a year. When products made 100% from plants taste and perform like their
cow dairy counterparts, it makes it easy for people to switch, and in turn, eat healthier while
being more compassionate to animals and our planet.”
“While Pizza My Heart has offered vegan options, we haven’t always done it well. We have
long searched for a mozzarella with the taste profile that would appeal beyond the hardcore
vegan community. This is the first vegan mozzarella that we’ve tasted that can do that,” said
Spencer Glenn, CEO of Pizza My Heart. “With Miyoko’s Cultured Vegan Pizza Mozz, we truly
believe everyone, including our customers who are omnivores, have lactose intolerance or other
dietary issues, don’t need to sacrifice taste and texture to enjoy our delicious pies and slices.”
There will be two versions of the new cheese available to the food-service industry, an organic
version made with a cashew milk base and an allergen-free version, made with an oat milk and
legume base and made with mostly organic ingredients. Both are non-gmo and made with
whole food ingredients. Unique to this cheese is that it comes in a liquid form that is easy and
simple to apply in any food service operation. When heated in an oven, the cheese takes on the
traditional stretchiness of classic melted mozzarella. This innovation, along with the recipe and
taste, was created by Miyoko’s Research & Development team out of the company’s
headquarters in Petaluma, CA.
“Leveraging our deep experience with our vegan epicurean cheese wheels and butters, we are
able to take a number of traditional cheesemaking techniques and some novel and proprietary
food science insights to achieve cow dairy taste and performance using legumes and oats,” said
Dan Rauch, Vice President of Research and Development at Miyoko’s Creamery. “Our team will
continue to look at ways to unlock the power of plants while having them meet or beat the taste
and performance of their cow dairy counterparts.”

Leading Plant-Based Dairy Brand Miyoko’s Creamery Previews Groundbreaking New Products at Expo East

Miyoko’s Revolutionizes Dairy With the First Ever Oat Milk Butters and 100% Plant-Based Vegan Allergen-Friendly Cheeses that Actually Taste Like Dairy

September 12th, 2019, BALTIMORE, MD — Leading plant-based dairy brand Miyoko’s Creamery, known for its award-winning vegan butter and artisan cheeses, is previewing innovative new products at the 2019 Natural Products Expo East. The new products include an unsalted version of Miyoko’s organic European Cultured Butter, the fastest growing non-dairy butter in all channels; the first ever spreadable cultured organic oat milk butter; and several new whole-food based, allergen-friendly vegan cheeses made with organic ingredients. All products will be available to the market in early 2020. In blind-taste tests, consumers could not tell the difference between Miyoko’s vegan butter and cheeses, and their dairy analogues and enjoyed melty, gooey, cheesy, plant-based goodness in every bite.

Together, this powerhouse line up of new products will reinforce Miyoko’s dominance in the non-dairy category and rival the dairy category in taste, texture, and nutrition to create an unrivaled block of cultured, whole food-based, organic, non-GMO vegan products that taste exactly like their dairy counterparts.

The radically real new products that Miyoko’s Creamery is previewing at Expo East include:

  • European Style Unsalted Cultured Vegan Butter — Consumers demanded an epicurean grade, unsalted vegan butter to elevate their culinary game, and Miyoko’s delivered.  This product is a true 1:1 replacement of dairy butter, allowing Food Service Chefs and home bakers to veganize any recipe with consistently phenomenal success.  
  • Oat Milk Butter — The first ever spreadable plant-based, cultured vegan oat milk butters are designed with both flavor and convenience in mind. These groundbreaking new products are the first of their kind to market and are available in two flavors: a classic tasting European style butter churned from naturally sweet organic oat milk, and a naturally flavored oat milk butter infused with the savory taste of garlic and parm.
  • Allergen-Friendly Cheeses — A new line of nut / lactose / soy / gluten-free, kid-approved, organic, vegan Cheddar and Pepper Jack cheeses will be available in blocks, shreds, and slices, with 3 grams of protein. These incredible cheeses are made from culturing whole foods including potatoes, legumes, and oats, and rival the flavor and texture of their conventional cheese counterparts. No weird science, all derived from organic whole food, and free from all major allergens. They are ideal for everything from plant-based burgers and grilled cheese to quesadillas and nachos, at home and at school. Kids taste-tested can’t tell the difference, and parents are thrilled at the protein-rich, allergen-free clean ingredients.

The nine new products will join Miyoko’s existing line of nineteen award-winning products including European Cultured Vegan Butter and premium cheeses such as Aged Smoked Farmhouse, Double Cream Chive, Sundried Tomato Garlic and Aged Black Ash. Miyoko’s Creamery introduced fan favorite cream cheeses and spreadable Roadhouse cheeses in 2019, and continues to introduce innovative new products designed to further their mission of changing public perception of what vegan dairy can taste like by inspiring consumers to switch from animal dairy without compromising their love of cheese, and stop the trajectory of climate change.

Founded by former restaurateur, best-selling vegan cookbook author, and powerful environmental activist Miyoko Schinner, Miyoko’s Creamery crafts all of their products using only real and organic ingredients like plants, nuts and legumes. All products are made in a kitchen in Sonoma County, not a lab and never with fillers, additives, GMO ingredients, or fake anything. Miyoko’s products are better for the environment than their animal dairy analogues, producing up to 98% less greenhouse gases, making them a healthier, more ethical and environmentally responsible choice for consumers. Launched just five years ago, Miyoko's Creamery products can now be found in over 12,000 retail locations across the US, from places like Target, Trader Joe’s, Whole Foods, and Kroger to most natural boutique grocery stores across the country, distributed through Kehe and UNFI. Miyoko’s also just announced their first international expansion into Canada, where they are in more than 1,000 grocery stores, distributed by UNFI Canada.
