Vevan plant-based cheese is now available for retail sale, including Sprouts Markets nationwide. The Vevan line includes Shred (shredded) and Melts (sliced) formats, plus a new line called Snax: portable snack packs containing Vevan cheese cubes with dried fruit and nuts.
“Vevan tastes great in recipes, but it’s also great on its own, and that’s the premise of Snax,” said Keith Schuman, Vevan Business Unit Lead. “There are few, if any, plant-based options for specific eating occasions like casual snacking, so it’s especially exciting to share Vevan in a format that lets plant-based eaters enjoy those moments more completely.”
Vevan cheesemakers put a great deal of care into crafting an authentic texture for Vevan, primarily with the idea that it would need to perform well as an ingredient for foods like pizza, pasta and burgers. However, innovators quickly realized that the great taste would stand up to other applications that could feature the product, rather than hiding it as an ingredient.
Vevan Snax is the first such example. Snax will be offered in two flavors and come packaged in a 16-count display-ready case. Individual Snax units (1.48 oz. each) are expected to fall in the $1.50 to $2.50 range; final pricing will be at retailers’ discretion.
Vevan Lemon Poppyseed Mozza Snax contains creamy bite-size cubes of Vevan Mozza infused with a hint of lemon and poppyseeds, paired with sweet dried blueberries and roasted cashews.
- Vevan P’Jack Snax features bite-size cubes of Vevan P’Jack paired with tart dried cranberries and smoky almonds.
Vevan, which first launched with a trio of flavors earlier in 2020. In addition to new Vevan Snax, Vevan is offered in Ched, Mozza and P’Jack varieties in Shred and Melts formats at retailers from coast to coast.
