Food company GO VEGGIE just launched two new vegan cheese snacks. Both flavors—White American and White Cheddar & Meatless Bacon—are a departure from the company’s previous cheese snack bars (which contained casein) and are soy-free, non-GMO, and made with coconut oil. The snack bars are currently shipping to retailers and will be sold in 6-ounce bags that contain eight 0.75-ounce bars. While the company is not fully vegan, GO VEGGIE’s marketing manager Allison Houle reveals the new products were developed to serve rising interest in plant-based foods. “With 55% of Americans planning to eat more plant-based foods this year,” Houle says, “we’re excited to offer a delicious, healthy snack option to support the rising consumer demand.” Vegan cheese brands continue to carve out their spot within the growing dairy-free sector, including artisanal nut-based cheese company Miyoko’s Kitchen, which recently received a $6 million investment to support its expansion.
