Plant-based cheese maker Good Planet Foods has introduced new ‘snackable’ vegan cheese wedges.
The ‘creamy’ plant-based wedges are individually wrapped for portability and can be enjoyed as a snack, in a lunchbox or as part of a charcuterie board.
According to Good Planet Foods, its wedges are made with simple ingredients such as coconut oil and plant proteins, and are free from gluten, soy and lactose.
Three varieties are available – original, pepper jack and smoked gouda – each of which is keto-friendly.
“The plant-based cheese segment is growing extremely fast, but the potential is far greater than we are seeing,” said Good Planet co-CEO, Bart Adlam.
“We are committed to growing the segment by making it easy for consumers to make a sustainable choice and choose plant-based. With this innovation, we are delivering an allergen-free, keto-certified, plant-based snackable cheese wedge that delivers all the creaminess, satisfaction and taste of dairy cheese.”
The new offering comes in 4oz packs of six wedges and is available for $4.99 at HyVee, Wakefern and other grocery retailers.
Last year, Good Planet secured $12 million in a Series A funding round led by venture capital firm Cleveland Avenue.
