Vegan Cheese Giant To Work With Dairy Farmer To Turn Farm Plant-Based


1 Minutes Read

A vegan cheese giant is set to work with a California dairy farmer to convert their dairy farm to plant agriculture for human consumption.

Miyoko’s Creamery, which makes a range of plant-based dairy products, will start looking for a farm in early 2020. It will commit financial resources as well as technical expertise as part of the collaboration.

Transitioned acreage of the farm will be used by Miyoko’s Creamery for research and development for new products, as well as growing plants to make existing products.

Farm Sanctuary, which ‘promotes compassionate vegan living through rescue, education, and advocacy efforts’, will play an advisory role on the project.

‘Compassionate food supply’ 

“Farmers are struggling, farms are closing, livelihoods are threatened, and we want to help the American farmer stay true to the land,” said Miyoko Schinner, Founder and CEO of Miyoko’s. 

“We can’t truly move to a compassionate food supply without the support and participation of the farming community. They are integral to our ability to eliminate animal agriculture and lead us to a compassionate and sustainable food supply.”

“We share Miyoko’s vision for a compassionate food system and are looking forward to working with them to help farmers become part of a cruelty-free, more sustainable, plant-based food future,” added Gene Baur, co-founder of Farm Sanctuary.
