California-based Miyoko’s Creamery recently expanded distribution to Australia by way of 400 Woolworth’s grocery stores. Australian customers can now purchase European Style Cultured Vegan Butter, Classic Vegan Cream Cheese, and cheese wheels in four flavors: Black Ash, Smoked Farmhouse, Double Cream Chive, and Sundried Tomato Garlic. “We have always had a passionate fan base in Australia and are cognizant that it is one of the fastest-growing markets for plant-based foods,” Miyoko’s founder Miyoko Schinner told VegNews. “We had a great opportunity to work with Woolworth’s, one of the country’s largest retailers, and felt that this was the best way to reach that fan base, as well as many others.” Miyoko’s launch in Australia is part of the brand’s global expansion, which also brought its European Style Cultured Vegan Butter to 1,000 grocery stores in Canada last month. In addition to expanding internationally, the vegan company is developing new products such as butter made from oats and nut-free cheeses, expected to debut in the United States in early 2020.
