A host of high-quality, vegan offerings are making their way to the United States retail, ingredient, and foodservice markets. MCT Dairies and Vgarden have announced a strategic collaboration to introduce Vgarden’s full range of high-quality vegan products to U.S. consumers.

Ken Meyers, Chief Executive Officer, MCT Dairies“Initially we were not interested in entering the plant-based arena, but once we tasted and met with the Vgarden team, we realized that Vgarden’s clean-label recipes are something very special. Their products deliver taste texture and mouthfeel,” stated Ken Meyers, Chief Executive Officer of MCT Dairies.

With manufacturing sites in Israel and Australia and further plans for expansion, Vgarden is poised for growth. As a press release explained, the brand is committed to giving consumers exactly what they grew up on and long for, but in a healthier, environmentally responsible version—free of allergens, cholesterol, and animal components, all without any compromise on the flavor.

Vgarden was founded in 2015, and since then has made significant strides in the plant-based food industry. Its expansive customer base spans Israel, Europe, and Australia, with its vegan cheese and meat products gaining the attention of notable clients such as Domino's Pizza, Pizza Hut, Burger King, and Papa Johns. The company has also established itself as an innovator in the plant-based food space, offering a full spectrum of solutions for those looking to adopt a plant-based lifestyle. One of these key developments includes the production of a plant-based tuna that is remarkably similar in taste and texture to real tuna.

Ilan Adut, Chief Executive Officer, Vgarden“We are excited to join forces with Mr. Meyers and the MCT team,” said Ilan Adut, Chief Executive Officer of Vgarden. “MCT’s deep roots, strategic position, and pragmatic approach are a great fit to our capabilities and vision. Vgarden’s R&D team is willing to assist in developing products that not only meet the needs of the consumer, but we will work with marketers and food manufacturers to develop special attributes to suit their specific needs, as well.”

As this innovative brand continues to help retailers tap into key demands from vegan consumers, DMN will be here with the latest updates.
