Forager Project Unveils CHEESEWORKS a New Line of Organic, Plant-Based Cheeses, Expanding the Brand into Another Creamery Category

SAN FRANCISCO — Forager Project®, a family-owned and operated plant-based food company, has launched a line of organic, plant-based cheeses. The dairy-free cheeses are uniquely crafted to perform and taste like dairy cheese using the company’s probiotic cashewmilk yogurt as the base. This line of organic, dairy-free cheeses is unique in the category for many reasons:

  • Melt & Stretch. It’s the cheesiest vegan cheese with the best melt and stretch and amazing taste and texture just like dairy cheese.
  • Simple Ingredients. The focus is on creating the highest quality cheeses with the fewest ingredients possible and NO modified food starches.
  • Always Organic. It is possible to make exceptional vegan cheese 100% organic. All Forager Project products are always organic, and cheese is no exception
  • Always Plant-based. Forager Project is a well established plant-based company that has been crafting foods since 2013.

“Here at Forager Project, we’re dedicated to amazing our consumers with great tasting plant-based foods in every creamery category,” said Forager Project Co-Founder and CEO Stephen Williamson. “With the launch of cheese, we’re excited to give our consumers even more delicious, plant-based options while staying true to our mission to make plant-based foods more accessible for everyone.”

Forager Project’s new CHEESEWORKSTM line-up of organic, dairy-free cheeses (available in chunks and shreds) include:                              

  • Organic Jack Cheese: This vegan Jack is perfect on plant-based burgers, grilled cheeses and burritos.
  • Organic Queso Fresco Cheese: Great for balancing heat and bringing flavors together, this cheese is perfect for nachos, quesadillas, enchiladas and more.
  • Organic Mozzarella Cheese: With its soft texture, delicate flavor and incredible melt & stretch, this is the perfect pick for Margherita pizza or a vegan meatball sub.
  • Organic Parmesan Cheese: With its nutty flavor, this is the perfect pick for pasta, caesar salad, or atop roasted Brussel sprouts
