The plant-based movement has swelled across multiple categories, particularly in the cheese sector. One company to keep an eye on is GOOD PLANeT Foods. The plant-based cheese creator has made major strides, now serving in markets such as Japan and South Korea and setting plans to break into four additional countries in its fourth quarter.
“Expanding our product internationally means more than introducing GOOD PLANeT to more consumers. It means we have the opportunity to impact more communities with a mission we truly believe in: being ‘GOOD for YOU and GOOD for the PLANeT,’” said David Israel, Founder and CEO. “The quality of our cheese stands up against both our competitive counterparts and our dairy counterparts. We’re proud to be a part of the major growth of this industry.”
This international expansion demonstrates the overall growth GOOD PLANeT Foods is currently experiencing, alongside the rapid growth of the plant-based industry, according to the press release. Consumers who are health conscious, focused on environmental sustainability, and seekers of allergen-free foods can enjoy the taste and experience of cheese, now more readily available wherever they are in the world.
GOOD PLANeT offers a wide variety of plant-based products to bring the taste, texture, and meltability of cheese to consumers in all of their culinary adventures. Due, in part, to the consumer preference away from animal products, concerns about animal welfare, personal health, and sustainability, the plant-based food category is valued at $21.18 billion globally, according to UnivDtos Market Insights, as stated in the press release.
From its inception, GOOD PLANeT Foods launched a new brand of plant-based cheeses and helped to bring more awareness and accessibility to the plant-based foods category while also being vegan and Non-GMO, Kosher, and Halal certified.
Bringing a variety of tastes for the international market, GOOD PLANeT offers four varieties of shredded plant-based cheese including Mozzarella, Smoked Mozzarella, Parmesan, and Cheddar as well as five sliced cheese such as Smoked Provolone, Cheddar, American, Garlic & Herb, and Hot Pepper.
