Whether it’s spreadable mozzarella, creamy butter, or rich cream cheese, Miyoko’s Creamery offers consumers vegan and animal-free “dairy” products without sacrificing taste and experience.
Miyoko Creamery was founded in 2014 by Miyoko Schinner. Miyoko aims to change perceptions of vegetarian food by offering exciting, high-quality vegan dairy products. Headquartered in Sonoma County, California, Miyoko started with four employees in the kitchen of Miyoko’s home and dreamed of inspiring people to lead “exceptionally vegetarian lifestyles.”
The company’s products are available at retailers such as Whole Foods, Trader Joe’s, Target and Walgreens, among nearly 30,000 others. Miyoko has international appeal as its goods are distributed in Canada, South Africa, Hong Kong and Singapore.
Miyoko is also expanding its internal operations to meet customer demand: Last year, the company expanded its Petaluma, California base of operations by 66% and its workforce by 25%.
Miyoko herself is a true and renewed leader, striving to make a positive impact in the world. In addition to her business interests, Mioko Rancho Compassion, a non-profit animal sanctuary in Marin County, is founded. Miyoko’s inspiration was on display this summer at the Olympics. Myoko ran the “Cheese of Change” campaign that featured US Olympic athletes such as Heather Mills, a three-time gold-medalist football player.
Miyoko recently received $52 million in new capital to expand product innovation and distribution. PowerPlant Partners led a Series C funding round that included investments by Cult Capital, Obuate Ventures, Stray Dog and CPT Capital.
Miyoko prides itself on its nutritional value and mission-driven business practices. Their products are packed with nutrients and the company is characterized by commendable transparency regarding the sourcing and quality of the ingredients used. The company envisions itself as the “Generator of Tomorrow” due to its values of animal empathy and sustainability.
Miyoko Schinner stated that “Miyoko Creamery is ‘a mission with a company,’ which ‘acts as a compassionate change agent for a dairy-free animal-free future. We look forward to building on our strong foundation and further innovation in this category as more and more consumers commit to change.”
By producing delicious dairy foods without the use of animal products, Miyoko forges a path to a dairy-free animal-free diet compatible with the salvation of our planet. Mioko Shiner was even recognized as a “vegetarian revolutionary” by the United Nations in its Global Women’s Future initiative.
We have enjoyed partnering with Miyoko and showing the world that you can do well by doing good.
