Vegan Cheese Maker Moves to Petaluma
Vegan cheese company Miyoko’s Kitchen is expanding into Petaluma, bringing about 45 jobs. Located next to the head office of Cowgirl Creamery, the new Petaluma facility will house Mikoyo’s Kitchen headquarters and its production plant.
The maker of nut-based butters and cheeses ranks third in the nation when it comes to sales of cheese alternatives. The Miyoko’s Creamery brand is sold in independent markets across the country as well as at the Raley’s grocery chain and nine of Whole Foods Market’s 11 regions.
Plant-based cheese is here to stay and is outpacing artisinal dairy cheese.
Founder Miyokio Schinner is the author of two vegan cookbooks — “The New Now and Zen Epicure” and “Artisan Vegan Cheese.”
