LAS VEGAS – Tofurky, the leading independent producer of plant-based meats in the U.S., and sister brand Moocho, which is leveling up dairy-free comfort foods, will both showcase crave-worthy innovations at the Winter Fancy Food Show 2022. Attendees will be some of the first to experience Tofurky’s all new Pepperoni the collection of new Cream Cheeses from Moocho and sample the brand’s Shredded Cheese.
Both brands are expanding their portfolios of chef-crafted plant-based foods made with the highest quality ingredients by bringing more comfort food options to the table for everyone from flexitarians to vegans to enjoy. Non-GMO, vegan, gluten-, soy- and cholesterol-free, these soon-to-be plant-based favorites cater to the growing number of consumers who are conscious of their food choices and are demanding more sustainable options. Additional details include:
- Tofurky Pepperoni – This plant-based meat unlocks complex meaty flavors blended with garlic, mustard and crushed red pepper when hot, and a savory, bold, somewhat spicy rich flavor with delicious earthy fats when cold. With the ability to char, brown or blacken at high heat, Pepperoni stands out from other plant-based options on the market. It’s the perfect way to add all the bold flavor of pepperoni without any animal-based ingredients to pizzas, a quick appetizer, charcuterie board, or lunch and dinner recipes. SRP $4.99, 8 packages per retail case.
- Moocho Cream Cheese – Free from the eight major allergens, Cream Cheese brings a rich, tangy flavor by using fermented cultured ingredients in the same way traditional cream cheese making takes place, combined with a creamy, spreadable texture. In three varieties including Strawberry, Garden Vegetable and Just Plain Yum, they’re great for many recipes, like swirled into creamy pasta, whipped into mashed potatoes or dolloped on a freshly toasted bagel. SRP $4.50, 6 packages per retail case.
- Moocho Shredded Cheese – Available in Cheddar, Mozzarella, and Fiesta Blend, these allergen-friendly, dairy-free Shreds use fermented cultures and ageing used in traditional cheese-making techniques to draw out the very best experience in plant-based shredded cheese. Whether sprinkled on a taco or melted to top pizza and grilled cheese, these shredded cheeses, which launched in 2020, are made to melt and stretch with uniquely big, smooth flavor and elevate every kind of comfort food with non-GMO, vegan, cheesy perfection. SRP of $4.99, 8 oz. pouches.
Showgoers will get a first taste of Moocho’s three cream cheese flavors, deliciously spread on bagels. Attendees will also be able to sample a comfort food favorite, pizza, incorporating Moocho’s dairy-free Mozzarella Shreds and Tofurky Pepperoni for a flavor-packed, plant-based bite.
“We are thrilled to share our new plant-based Cream Cheese, Shredded Cheese and Pepperoni with Winter Fancy Food Show attendees,” said Tofurky and Moocho CEO and president Jaime Athos. “Tofurky and Moocho are taking plant-based foods to the next level.
