Ellen DeGeneres and Portia de Rossi have become investors in Petaluma-based Miyoko’s Creamery, producer of plant-based products such as vegan cheeses and butter.

“Portia and I have been customers of Miyoko’s Creamery for several years now and their cheeses and vegan butter have become staples in our home” says DeGeneres. “As we learned more about the mission behind the products and about Miyoko herself, we knew this was a special and exciting company that we wanted to support.”

The amount invested in wasn’t disclosed. But their decision to invest was based on the company’s plan to help a California farmer to convert a dairy to plant agriculture for food.

Miyoko’s Creamery says it will begin the search process in early 2020 and commit financial resources to the selected farm and technical expertise.
