Bellevue, Washington-based Good Planet Foods, creator of plant-based, allergen-free cheeses, has unveiled two new products to its lineup – real smoked cheddar and real smoked gouda plant-based cheese wheels.
The wheels will be making their debut March 8-12 at Natural Products Expo West in Anaheim, California. The smoked wheels are crafted with allergen-free ingredients and are smoked for hours with real applewood chips. The smoked wheel will retail for SRP $5.99 and will be available at retailers nationwide.
“We are committed to expanding the plant-based cheese segment by pushing the envelope and offering consumers new ways to enjoy allergen-free, dairy-free cheese,” said Bart Adlam, co-CEO of Good Planet Foods.
“With our new smoked wheels, we are doing just that. These naturally smoked offerings will bring the joy of cheese to consumers who are vegan, flexitarian or just trying to make a small step toward a healthier diet and planet.”
Good Planet’s experts have stated their claim that if every person in the U.S. gave up meat and dairy products for at least one day out of the week, the environment would reap the benefits. By switching out dairy products, consumers could save at least 50 percent of the Earth’s water use as well as thousands of tons of carbon emissions.
Good Planet Foods products are vegan, dairy-free, gluten-free, soy-free, lactose-free, allergen-free, non-GMO and keto certified.
Good Planet Foods are currently available in more than 1,200 retail locations nationwide and offers a variety of plant-based cheeses, which include the slices, shreds, wedges and the newly announced smoked wheels. Each of these products are made up of clean ingredients, such as coconut oil and plant starches.
The company’s products can be found nationwide at grocery retailers, including Sprouts, Wegmans, Giant, Albertsons/Safeway and Jewel-Osco.
