• Canada’s Nuts for Cheese Reports 50% YOY Growth as US Expansion Continues to Accelerate



    Nuts for Cheese, Canada’s leading manufacturer of artisan, organic dairy-free cheese, is rapidly expanding its award-winning product line across US natural channels. Boasting double-digit sales growth, the brand also plans to release its first non-dairy cream cheese in 2022. 

    Nuts for Cheese sells a range of innovative and versatile cheeses that can be sliced, shredded, spread or melted. Handcrafted with traditional aging techniques, its products are made from organic cashews, coconut oil and sunflower oil. Popular varieties include: 

    • Un-Brie-Lievable (Coconut and cashew blend)
    • Black Garlic / Smoky Gouda (Both feature vibrant, hand-painted rinds)
    • “Super Blue” (Marbled with spirulina)
    •  Chipotle Cheddar (A bit spicy, infused with chipotle adobo sauce)

    “Exciting” launches coming

    The company reports it has seen 50% year-over-year sales growth as it increases distribution across the US. Nuts For Cheese is currently sold in over 45 states at a growing number of retailers including Whole Foods, National Co-op Grocers, Natural Grocers Vitamin Cottage, and thousands of independent health food stores.

    Last year, the company revealed it had secured deals with some of the largest US national distributors. “We are expanding across the US rapidly and are launching with some exciting key retailers in the near future,” says Founder & CEO Margaret Coons.

    Abundant opportunities ahead

    At the current rate of growth, the company believes Nuts For Cheese will be widely available across all 50 states in as little as one year. In addition to cheese, the brand has also added Nuts for Butter, a line of dairy-free butter in Salted, Unsalted and Herb & Garlic varieties.

    “As we approach seven years in business, it’s so rewarding to see how far the plant-based industry has evolved,” says Coons. “Consumers are increasingly seeking out dairy alternatives for a variety of reasons, from health, to ethics, to dietary restrictions. It’s exciting to be part of a growing industry, with abundant opportunity ahead.”
