Times are changing. The popularity of plant-based foods is growing fast. In fact, of the 62% households that have purchased plant-based foods in the past year, 79% are repeat buyers1. And with vegans, flexitarians, and the lactose intolerant representing an estimated 30+% of the population2, plant-based cheese is more in demand than ever before. But unfortunately, it often disappoints when offered.

THE UNTAPPED POTENTIAL OF
90%* of vegans, flexitarians, and lactose intolerant consumers would seek restaurants offering plant-based cheese.
Plant-based cheese is currently available in only 15% of pizza restaurants1.
And when available, 25%* dislike the taste of the plant-based cheese being offered.
As a result, at least 38%* of these consumers compromise by ordering (and eating) pizza with dairy cheese — or they remove it themselves.
