Heidi Ho Organics, makers of plant-based vegan cheese products, are using the fundraising platform Kickstarter to grow. The Portland, Ore.-based company began making vegan feta, chipotle cheddar, smoked gouda, and monterey jack cheeses in 2010, and is currently developing sauces, spreads, and dips. With the help of donations, Heidi Ho hopes to buy new equipment—currently, the company’s vegan cheeses are created two pounds at a time in a food processor. The company’s end goal, according to their Kickstarter site, is to “stimulate local economies around the globe by building small sub-production facilities that source their ingredients locally and only distribute within a local radius.”
