Petaluma-based Miyoko’s Kitchen is growing. The maker of vegan cheeses, butter and other plant-based foods has increased production to about 30,000 units per day. Sales for this year will be more than twice what they were last year — with similar growth projected for next year.
Founder Miyoko Schinner says the appeal of her company’s products goes beyond the traditional consumers of vegan foods.
“We have crossed over from natural foods to conventional grocery stores like Target,” Schinner said. “Kroger plans to outsell Whole Foods in plant-based foods.”
