TORONTO– Organic Garage Ltd. (TSXV: OG | OTCQX: OGGFF | FRA: 9CW1), one of Canada’s leading independent organic grocers, is pleased to announce that its plant-based food company, Future of Cheese Inc. (“Future of Cheese” or the “Company”), has reported a successful launch of the Company’s recently announced plant-based brie, selling through its first production run while satisfying all retailer orders. The plant-based brie launched through retailers last week and builds on the recent success of the Company’s plant-based butter and rapidly growing brand awareness.
“The retail response is even better than anticipated. Selling out our first production run without incurring lost product costs is as successful as it gets in the CPG business,” stated Jen Wojtaszek, President of Future of Cheese. “We are currently increasing production for all of our current products in anticipation of the holiday season, accelerated in part by increased interest from new retailers and potentially high-profile foodservice and restaurant partnerships.”
Canadian retailer The Cheese Gallery commented, “We are so excited to have this new line of dairy-alternative products created by Canada’s premier cheese expert Afrim Pristine and his partners at Future of Cheese! We are thrilled to have both the plant-based, ripened brie and the cultured butter available for our clients.”
“We are very pleased by the overall response to the launch of our plant-based products,” added Matt Lurie, CEO of Organic Garage. “Following the successful launch of the plant-based brie, we now have three SKUs that are in high demand and we are able to meet current and future needs from existing and new clients.”
