HOOD RIVER, Ore.–Moocho, a plant-based dairy brand leveling up dairy-free comfort foods, announced today the launch of its new dairy-free cheese Shreds. The dairy-free Shreds, in flavors including Cheddar, Mozzarella and Fiesta Blend, are crafted with simple, modern ingredients, and apply fermented cultures and aging used in traditional cheese-making techniques to level up comfort food favorites. With big, smooth flavors, the new chef-crafted plant-based cheeses provide tasty, affordable, and accessible dairy-free foods with the texture shoppers crave.
Unique in taste and texture, Moocho Shreds are vegan, 100% non-GMO and gluten-free and contain 0% Cholesterol. Made to melt and stretch just as well as traditional dairy-based cheese, new Shreds are perfect for stepping-up plant-based pizza, tacos and mac ‘n cheese.
“Category research suggests shoppers see a gap in the plant-based cheese category where brands haven’t been able to provide a taste and texture that people crave,” said Jaime Athos, president and CEO of Moocho and its sister brand, Tofurky. “Moocho aims to improve category perception and impress a market hungry for delicious, affordable and accessible plant-based options. As a category, we can do better now, with more ingredient options available.”
