Boermarke Develops “Breakthrough” Plant-Based Cheeses With Added Protein

Dutch dairy alternatives producer Boermarke has announced the development of a new range of plant-based cheeses with added vitamins and 10% protein.

Described as a “breakthrough”, the protein-rich products are made with a fermentation process to replicate the taste and texture of cheese. The range features three flavours — Gouda, Cumin, and Mediterranean — all with a Nutriscore of either B or C. This indicates that they are high in fibre and low in saturated fat and salt.

The plant-based cheeses will launch at select retailers across Europe on June 1, and will be available to taste at the PLMA trade show in Amsterdam from May 28-29. Boermarke will be in Hall 5 at stand C.13.

“Healthy and delicious”

Previously a conventional dairy producer, Boermarke announced in September that it would become a fully plant-based company, after seeing 800% growth in its production of dairy alternatives over the previous three years. The transition will allow Boermarke to cater to consumers who are worried about cross-contamination between dairy and plant-based products.

Boermarke offers dairy alternatives under its own brand, Vairy, as well as for private label. The company says it is one of just three European manufacturers with the capacity to produce large volumes of plant-based cheese.

According to a recent report, the market for cheese alternatives will be worth $4.8 billion by 2028, and is growing with an impressive CAGR of 12.2%.

“We are thrilled to introduce our new plant-based cheese to the market,” said Andrea Kamphuis, Product Manager at Boermarke. “We understand the importance of providing healthy and delicious plant-based alternatives, and we believe that this new product will be a game-changer in the dairy-free cheese industry. With its high protein content and better nutritional values compared to other plant-based cheeses, we are confident that this cheese has the potential to find its way to every fridge.”
