NUMU Vegan Cheese is currently available at pizzerias including Paulie Gee's, Motorino, Belluci's and Scarr's, and restaurants and delis such as Gallioto's Vegan Italian Deli and Orchard Grocer.
Leveraging the success at notable restaurants in the Greater New York region, the NUMU team is continuing to explore new restaurant partnerships and distributor relationships nationwide. Introduced to New Yorkers in 2016, NUMU Vegan Cheese was developed by Gunars Elmuts, who adopted a vegan lifestyle in 2011 while working as a DJ. Frustrated by the lack of vegan-friendly options available at late-night pizza shops, Elmuts decided to create his own revolutionary mozzarella – NUMU cheese.
Unlike other offerings, NUMU delivers a 100% vegan cheese that melts smooth, has no aftertaste and delivers the clean, creamy flavor of classic mozzarella – perfect for pizzas, lasagnas and sandwiches. With its base ingredients of potato starch, soybeans and coconut oil, NUMU is Kosher and completely free of dairy, lactose, casein, nuts and is non-GMO.
NUMU Vegan Mozzarella is currently available to foodservice vendors in convenient ready-to-use shreds and fresh blocks. The company is also actively developing a number of other varieties of vegan cheese.
