Greenleaf Foods, SPC, owner of plant-based brand Field Roast™, announced the debut of Chao Creamery Cantina-Style Plant-Based Queso. The new dairy-free queso is available now at Sprouts stores nationwide, as well as select locations of Albertsons, Safeway and Giant.
Plant-based queso sales have grown 94% in the last 52 weeks, with the overall plant-based cheese category estimated to have grown to $234M in recent years. When compared to the current leading plant-based queso product, Chao Creamery Queso greatly outperformed among consumers, with three times the purchase intent, 29% greater overall appeal and 27 percent greater taste preference.
Chao Creamery Queso combines bold flavor with the rich creaminess of Chao non-dairy cheese that makes it a dip for any chip. It is crafted with a blend of bell peppers, paprika, plus spices especially chosen to match the taste buds of queso fans. Made with fermented tofu rather than cashews, almonds or peanuts, Chao Creamery Queso sets a new standard in the plant-based queso category by filling flavor, texture, and ingredient gaps in the market.
Expertly crafted by the makers of Field Roast™, Chao Creamery offers indulgent and flavorful plant-based cheeses that elevate the everyday with a smooth, melty experience unlike any other. Artfully blended with fermented ingredients for a richer, one-of-a-kind flavor, our artisan slices, shreds, blocks, and dips make every bite more remarkable.
Add Chao Queso on top of a plant-based burger, stir it into a vegetarian chili, or use it to craft an insanely rich plant-based mac ‘n cheese.
